Each of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt published joint statement concerning classified documents released by CNN on July 10, 2017, reported the Saudi state-owned news agency SPA.

The issued joint statement reads as follows:

The four countries assert that the documents published by CNN, including the Riyadh Agreement (2013), its Executive Mechanism and the Riyadh Supplementary Agreement (2014), confirm beyond any doubt Qatar’s failure to meet its commitments and its full violation of its pledges.

The four states emphasize that the 13 demands submitted to the Qatari government were to fulfill their previous pledges and commitments and that the demands were originally stated in the Riyadh Agreement, its mechanism and the Supplementary Agreement and are fully in line with the spirit of what was agreed upon.
