CAIRO: The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL) called on Gulf countries to halt financial aid to anti-January 25 Revolution groups, according to a Thursday statement.
The statement said that the 30th meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), concluded on March 4, comes during a critical period that coincides with several attempts to drive a wedge between Egypt and Arab Gulf countries.
NASL stated that Egypt and the Arab Gulf countries face common threats that require “preparedness” and appropriate evaluation of the current situation.
It added that the principals of Sharia and the objectives of the GCC necessitate a reconsideration of the GCC’s current stance.
A GCC member in the internal affairs said the step follows interference from Qatar, a country he said is in violation of an accord signed by the GCC member states.
