Egypt rejects Qatar as member of anti-IS coalition

A U.S.-led anti-Islamic State coalition should not have member states that support terrorism, Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday in reference to Qatar.

"It is unacceptable for the coalition to have amongst its members states that support terrorism or advocate for it in their media," said Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid, who is heading the Egyptian delegation that participated in a coalition meeting in Washington on Tuesday.

He added the victory on the Islamic State in the field should be expanded to uproot all the terrorist and extremist organizations and the hands that support those organizations.
