The decision comes after a statement by the foreign ministry saying that arrangements are being made for a visit of a high-level Qatari delegation.

The Foreign Ministry issued a press statement on ongoing preparations for a visit of a Qatari delegation to the country “without consultation with the Council and without its knowledge,” said the TMC Spokesman Lieutenant-General Shams al-din Kabbashi during a press conference on Thursday.

Also, “The statement did reflect the official position of the Transitional Military Council,” he added.

The Council and the foreign ministry denied in separate statements a report by Alarabiya TV saying that the TMC had refused to receive a Qatari delegation.
