The Gulf crisis, which has left Qatar isolated since June last year, has not been included in the Arab Summit, said Saudi foreign minister.
“The solution of Qatar will be within the GCC,” or the six-state Gulf Cooperation Council, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh ahead of the Arab Summit.
Meanwhile, Syria has will not be allowed to take part in the meet despite being a member technically. Syria has been suspended from the summit since 2011 over the government’s role in the war there.
Qatar has confirmed its participation at the summit in spite of the ongoing crisis in the region.
