Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi discussed on Monday the recent developments in the Qatari crisis with visiting Kuwaiti First Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, state-run MENA news agency reported.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed sanctions on Qatar on June 5, cutting diplomatic and transport ties with the tiny Gulf monarchy, after accusing it of financing militant groups and allying with their regional arch-foe Iran.

More than two weeks after the Gulf crisis began, the blockading countries issued a list of 13 demands that included the closure of Al Jazeera Media Network.

Shoukry expressed Cairo's appreciation for the role Kuwait's Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah has played in mediating between the four Arab nations and Qatar.

The spokesman said President Sisi told Al-Sabah that Egypt's foreign policy is based on the principle of non-interference into the domestic affairs of any country; subsequently it refuses any interference of other countries into its internal affairs. The Egyptian leader said that his country does not tolerate any interference in its internal affairs, stressing the importance of confronting any policy that supports terrorism.

During the meeting, Shoukry stressed that Egypt is committed to the list of demands submitted to Qatar, adding that the measures taken against the Arab country will continue.
