Through his official Twitter account, Aljubeir said: “Qatar, today, have reservations about two statements reject the Iranian interference in is the domestic issues of the region’s countries, and a statement of the Arab League summit stresses the central of the Palestinian cause and demanding the establishment of a Palestinian State on the borders of UN’s 1967 resolution with East Jerusalem as its capital. Everybody knows that Qatar's distortion of facts is not surprising.”

In a separate tweet, the minister of state said: “States that have decisions of their own declare their stances and reservations during meetings and in accordance with established customs, not after the end of meetings!”

On Sunday June 2nd, Qatar Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said his country has reservations on the Arab and Gulf summits because some of their terms are contrary to Doha's foreign policy.

The Qatari retreat comes two days after the end of the Mecca summit, which stressed the unity of the Arab countries against the Iranian threats to the region.
