Saudi Arabia

On Tuesday, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has taken the decision of reopening the borders with Qatar after a deadlock of 3 years.

As per the shared details, the move is to resolve the political dispute that led Riyadh and its allies to impose a boycott on Qatar.

The announcement came on the eve of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit and could make way towards ending a three-year-old feud.

Kuwait’s foreign minister, after the resumption of land border activities, Saudi Arabia is set to reopen its airspace and sea border as well.

“An agreement has been reached to open airspace and land and sea borders between Saudi Arabia and Qatar as of this evening,” he said in his statement.

Kuwait’s foreign minister added that a declaration would be signed at the summit.

It may be recalled that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt have boycotted Qatar since mid-2017 after it was found to be supporting terrorism.

However, Qatar has repeatedly declined the allegations and said there was “no legitimate justification” for the severance of relations.
