Qatar assist Egypt not the Muslim brotherhood - FM Al-Attiyah

PARIS, Aug 18 (KUNA) -- Qatar is offering aid and support for Egypt and not the Muslim brotherhood, foreign minister Khaled Al-Attiyah said Sunday.
"Qatar did not provide support to a specific political party or group, it is still providing assistance to Egypt after the January 25 (2011) revolution up until now," Al-Attiyah told a joint news conference with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius.
He said Qatar sent the second gas shipment to Egypt two days ago as part of Doha's continuous support to the north African country. "The Qatari assistance and support for the Egyptian people will not stop," he underlined.
Fabius called on importance of stopping bloodshed and establishing dialogue between all parties in Egypt.
"This is not an easy thing of course but I think all countries with good intentions should work in that direction," he said.
Talks between Al-Attiyah and Fabius dealt with the unrest in Egypt which killed hundreds of people and injured thousands others. (end) amm.bs KUNA 182207 Aug 13NNNN
