Abu Dhabi: Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt have issued a joint statement concerning Qatar-related documents broadcast by CNN.
The statement reads as follows:

“The four countries assert that the documents published by CNN, including the Riyadh Agreement (2013), its Executive Mechanism and the Riyadh Supplementary Agreement (2014), confirm beyond any doubt Qatar’s failure to meet its obligations and its violation and full disregard of its commitments.

“The four States emphasize that the 13 claims submitted to the Government of Qatar were to fulfill their previous obligations and that the original claims were stated in the Riyadh Agreement, its Mechanism and the Supplementary Agreement and are fully in line with the spirit of what has been agreed upon.”
