Signs of an imminent end for the crisis between Qatar and the other Gulf States have been emerging, likely through Kuwaiti mediation.

Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Qabas, reported that the Kuwaiti Emir sent a message to the Saudi King, urging him to end the crisis.

There have been reports that athletes from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE are taking part in the Gulf Cup Tournament, to be organised by Qatar this month.

AFP reported that a Qatari delegation is planning to pay an official visit to Saudi Arabia in the coming few days.

According to Bloomberg, an informed source claims that the solution to the crisis is concentrated on reinstating Qatari-Saudi relations, hoping that this would end the UAE and Bahraini boycott.
