The new UAE Ambassador to Qatar Saleh Bin Mohammed Al-Amri is reported to have arrived in Doha today eight months after Abu Dhabi withdrew its envoy to the Gulf state, the Anadolu Agency reported.

Qatar Foreign Minister Khalid Bin Mohammad Al-Attiyah wished the new ambassador success in his mission.

The UAE ambassador arrived in Qatar two weeks after Bahrain’s Ambassador, Waheed Mubarak Sayar, and the Saudi Ambassador, Abdullah Al-Aifan, returned to Doha.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain announced on November 16 that they have decided to return their ambassadors to the State of Qatar under the Riyadh Agreement which calls on all GCC states not to interfere in the internal affairs of other GCC countries, either directly or indirectly.

Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud said in a statement issued by the Royal Court and published by the Saudi Press Agency on November 19 that the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait confirmed their support for Egypt and were looking forward to the start of a new phase of brotherly cooperation.

The statement said: “We committed in this agreement to develop a comprehensive framework for unity and harmony and to reject the dispute in the face of the challenges facing the Arab and Islamic nations.”
