Qatar has accused the blockading countries of being responsible for the dissolution of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
The comments were made by Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani in a joint press conference with his Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari in Doha on Wednesday.
