São Paulo – The Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement this Tuesday (6) on the diplomatic crisis in the Gulf, calling for the resumption of talks so the situation can be overcome. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Egypt severed ties with Qatar this Monday (5) under claims that Doha backs terrorist groups, which Qatar denies.
“The Brazilian government is following closely the recent diplomatic crisis in the Gulf and the Arabian Peninsula,” the Brazilian Foreign Ministry statement reads.
The statement makes a plea for “moderation” and a “peaceful solution” to the crisis. “In reaffirming its trust in the peaceful solution of controversies, Brazil calls upon the parties involved to resume talks for overcoming the crisis, and to prioritize moderation so regional stability may be achieved,” the Foreign Ministry said.
