Qatari Foreign Minister: Doha ended Gulf dispute

Qatar has resolved its differences with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE and it is up to its fellow Gulf countries to send their ambassadors back to Doha, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khalid Bin Mohammed Al-Attiyah said yesterday.


The resolution came during a meeting in Riyadh on April 17, Al-Attiyah told reporters following a Kuwaiti-Qatari Joint Higher Committee meeting.

Al-Attiyah praised Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah who worked to resolve the differences of opinion and reach the understandings that “are not considered concessions by any party”.

Remarking on the Qatari evaluation of the situation in Egypt and future relations, the minister said that “Qatar emphasised its commitment to achieving stability and prosperity in Egypt during the last Arab League summit in Kuwait. I cannot evaluate the situation, but all I wish for is to see Egypt prosper on all levels.”

In response to a question about his country’s future relations with Egypt in case presidential candidate Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi wins the elections, Al-Attiyah said his country will continue to support the choice of the Egyptian people.

Al-Attiyah remarked on a proposal to form a union between Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries saying: “Qatar is committed to any proposal that brings the GCC countries together and strengthen their ties.”
