Egypt slams Qatari FM’s comments on internal dialogue

Encroachment on Egyptian judiciary, government’s decision and Egyptian people’s agreement, says Foreign Ministry

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has rejected comments by the Qatari Foreign Minister, Khalid bin Mohammad Al-Attiyah, regarding the Muslim Brotherhood, asserting objections to interfering in Egypt’s internal affairs.

The ministry issued a statement Saturday saying Al-Attiyah’s statements were unacceptable. The ministry statement added that it considered the comments an “encroachment on the Egyptian judiciary, [the] government’s decision and the Egyptian people’s agreement that the Brotherhood is a terrorist organization, that there is no chance for negotiation with and foreign mediation to have a dialogue with it…”

Al-Attiyah said on Wednesday, in an interview with the London-based television channel Alaraby TV, that the relations between the two countries are normal. He also commented on the Brotherhood’s status, saying: “We always encourage a dialogue, and solve issues within the frame of a national dialogue that gathers all, and doesn’t exclude anyone.”
