Tanzania calls for immediate solution on Diplomatic crisis in Gulf Countries
The united Republic of Tanzania is supporting the initiatives taken by the Amir of Kuwait HH Sheikh Sabah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s mediation efforts to address the Gulf crisis and the exploration of possible solution methods.
The diplomatic crisis began in June 5th 2017 when Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt abruptly cut off diplomatic relations with Qatar by withdrawing ambassadors and imposing trade and travel bans.
Tanzania call for unity and stability of the Gulf region and it emphasis that a solution should be found within the framework of the Gulf Cooperation Council and in that regards, it joins and support the initiative of the State of Kuwait that called for the crisis to be resolved through peaceful negotiations.
We therefore, appeal to the Gulf Nations to quickly resolve their disputes in peaceful and diplomatic manner.
