MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Alexei Pushkov said there is a certain difference in the policy of Saudi Arabia and Qatar in the Middle East.
Speaking at a press conference at the Itar-Tass news agency on Wednesday, Pushkov said, “Qatar and Saudi Arab compete in the Middle East very seriously. Qatar provided funding to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. The country also finances radical Islamists in Syria and other regions.”
“Saudi Arabia is ready to finance the new regime in Egypt” the State Duma lawmaker said. “We often unite both countries. But they are different: Saudi Arabians fear the Muslim Brotherhood and it considers them a force, which can potentially act against the monarchy” Pushkov said.
