CAIRO- 7 July,2017: CNN released secret documents of Riyadh two agreements that was set by Gulf Cooperation Council states in an attempt to amend the relations with Qatar, following a series of tense situations inside the GCC.

The documents revealed the Qatari role in funding terrorism in the region, by backing groups in extremists in Yemen and harboring members of the outlawed Muslim brotherhood group, keeping ties with entities such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

Qatar breached both agreements signed in the Saudi Capital Riyadh when it continued its support for outlawed groups, by either directly funding them or sheltering their leaders and members, and sustained its interfering policies with states such as Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen.

The agreement cast a light on the Qatari violations in the region, counties such as Egypt and Yemen were mentioned for the unrest they have witnessed due to the Qatari interference and harmful policies, represented in most of times by the emirate’s owned media station “Al Jazeera”, however the latter continues its biased coverage against the Egyptian state.

The Bahraini kingdom was a victim as well for the Qatari policies, as the tiny emirate made sure to keep ties with the terrorist group of Hezbollah, which have taken under its belt to destabilize the monarchy of Bahrain by igniting a sectarian strife.

Saudi Arabia King, Emir of Kuwait and Prince of Qatar signed the first agreement, dated November 23, 2013-, and it came as following:

They held extensive deliberations in which they conducted a full revision of what taints the relations between the [Gulf Cooperation] Council states, the challenges facing its security and stability, and means to abolish whatever muddies the relations.
