Libya’s interim government announced the severance of diplomatic relations with Qatar. On Monday, June 5, according to Assabah News.
“Qatar is the main source of arms supply to the Libyan branch of the organization “Muslim brotherhood” and other Islamist armed groups since 2012. He is a threat to national security in the Arab world”, — quotes RIA Novosti words of the Minister of foreign Affairs of the provisional government of Libya Mohammed al-Dairy from Tobruk.
5 June Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE announced the rupture of diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorist organizations and actions to destabilize the internal political situation in these Arab States. Their decision was also joined by Yemen.
