Senegal recalls ambassador from Qatar for consultations

Dakar, (IINA) – Senegal announced on Wednesday that it has decided to recall its ambassador from the Gulf state of Qatar for consultations.

We are following with deep concern the current situation in the Gulf region and as well call on other countries in the region to do the same, said a statement by the West African nation’s Foreign Ministry.

The statement added that Senegal is expressing its “active solidarity” with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, and Yemen, which have all cut ties with Qatar.

Qatar called the move to cut ties with it is “unjustified.” Senegal’s action follows similar moves on Tuesday by Mauritania to the north and Gabon to the south, saying that Qatar had violated the principles of Arab unity.
