It’s shocking a GCC member state planned to attack another: Official Aug 09, 2020 0 7206 12345 Tribune News NetworkDohaA top official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has termed the American Foreign Policy magazine report about a Saudi Arabia’s proposal to invade Qatar as shocking.In a series of tweets, Ahmed bin Saeed Al Rumaihi, Director of the Media Office at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), said, “It is regrettable that the military option is on the table for countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) against a member state in this system that was originally built on collective security.” “We emphasised from the beginning that the accusations that the blockading countries tried to level against us are nothing but to create justifications for achieving other larger goals that risk the future of the region and its people,” he said.“The military option revealed by the American magazine reinforces what His Highness the Amir of State of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, said in a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump, at the White House on September 7, 2017, about the success of Kuwaiti mediation in stopping the military intervention against Qatar.”He said, “The fact that Saudi Arabia has not yet denied what was revealed by the American magazine indicates the truth of what happened, which is extremely dangerous to the security and stability of the region.”“The military option proposed by the blockading countries violates international laws, and all the covenants accepted by us as member countries of the United Nations to resolve disputes by peaceful means. It clearly expresses an adventurous and irresponsible policy similar to the one that led the region to instability in the early 1990s.”The Foreign Policy magazine on August 6, 2020, published a report saying the United States “firmly rejected” the Saudi Arabian proposal in 2017.The magazine explained that this came during a phone call between them on June 6, 2017, that is, just one day after Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt imposed the blockade on Qatar, following a widespread campaign of fabrications.
