Theresa May to Gulf leaders: Restore GCC unity
London: The British Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday talked to a number of Gulf leaders and raised the ongoing isolation of Qatar in the Gulf region, calling on all sides to urgently de-escalate the situation, engage meaningfully in dialogue, and restore Gulf Cooperation Council unity at the earliest possible opportunity.
The Prime Minister spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia, the King of Bahrain, and the Emir of Qatar.
The British Prime Minister noted that Qatar should continue to build on the progress it has already made to address the scourge of radicalisation and terrorism in the region, in partnership with its Gulf allies.
In each of the calls, the British Prime Minister expressed thanks for messages of support and condolence following the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, noting that radicalisation and extremist violence was a shared threat.
