Qatar `regrets` Gulf envoys recall, will not reciprocate

Last Updated: Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - 18:37

Doha: Qatar said on Wednesday it regretted the decision of three fellow Gulf monarchies to recall their envoys to Doha, but pledged not to withdraw its ambassadors from those countries.

Doha said the decision by Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates was linked to "differences over issues outside the Gulf Cooperation Council", in an apparent reference to differing policies mainly regarding Egypt.

The three countries justified their recall moves by saying Qatar had failed not to meddle in the "internal affairs of any member state".
