Arab countries decided to lift the blockade from Qatar

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt decided to restore relations with Qatar three and a half years later.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia decided to open land and sea borders, as well as airspace, Al-Jazeera reports with reference to the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry.

According to the Kuwaiti side, which acted as a mediator in the negotiations between the two countries, this decision will come into force on Monday evening, January 4.

Earlier, a Reuters source in the US administration said that on the sidelines of the Gulf summit, the authorities of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt will sign an agreement to normalize relations with Qatar.

The publication also reports that the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani will attend the summit on Tuesday for the first time in three years.

Recall that in June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt severed diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs.

The Qatari authorities have repeatedly denied such accusations, calling them groundless.
