UAE warns Qatar: It could not belong to the GCC if it undermined regional security

The United Arab Emirates warned Qatar on Monday it could not belong to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) if it undermined regional security, calling for a “change of behavior” but not “regime change”.

Saudi Arabia and its allies imposed sanctions on Doha on 5 June, including closing its only land border, denying Qatar access to their airspace and ordering their citizens back from the emirate.

The Gulf crisis is the worst to hit the region since the establishment of the GCC in 1981. The four Arab states accuse Qatar of ties to Iran and of funding Islamist extremist groups. Qatar has denied the accusations.
