Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa has reaffirmed the Kingdom’s commitment to its long-standing positions with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt to safeguard the security and stability of the region.


He said Qatar should “stop the support and funding of terrorism and meet the conditions that have been announced and stipulated in the agreements reached in this framework.”


The King made his speech as he received senior state officials and diplomats at Al-Sakhir Palace on the occasion of Ramadan.


The Arab Quartet – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE and Egypt – boycotted Qatar in June 2017 for backing terrorism.
