"As long as Qatar continues this approach, the Kingdom of Bahrain can not participate in any GCC Summit or meeting attended by Qatar unless it corrects its approach, comes to its senses, and responds to the demands of the countries that suffered so much from its policies", he said during his weekly cabinet meeting in the capital, Manama.
GCC members Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and non-member Egypt on June 5 severed ties with Qatar over accusations of supporting extremism and being too close to Shiite rival Iran, charges Doha has denied.
The GCC also includes Oman and Kuwait. "We now feel more strongly about Qatar's independence and freedom and the fact that the country is quickly moved on to a self-reliant policy is a testimony to our hopes to see Qatar prosper".
"The new measures aim at preventing harming the security and stability of the kingdom of Bahrain particularly in light of the latest repercussions of the crisis with Qatar", said a statement from the official Bahraini news agency BNA.
On Monday, Bahraini foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said on his Twitter account that his country would not attend the upcoming GCC summit if Doha does not change its position, calling on the GCC to freeze Qatar's membership. Bahrain's visa requirements will apply from November 10.
"Qatar also shelters security fugitives and has facilitated the entry of individuals of different nationalities who represent threats to the national security of Bahrain by granting them exception from the issuing of entry visa". It's so obvious. Our sovereignty is a red line.
He discussed the interview of Sheikh Tamim with Charlie Rose, host of the "60 Minutes" show on CBS News channel. "And they're not happy with that".
