DUBAI: The delegations of the United Arab Emirates and Qatar met in Kuwait on Monday to discuss the implementation of the AlUla declaration, the official WAM news agency reported.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt agreed in January at a summit in Saudi AlUla to reestablish diplomatic, trade and travel ties with Doha, which had been severed in 2017 due to accusations that Qatar supported terrorism, an accusation it denies.
During the first meeting between the two parties, delegations discussed joint procedures aimed at: “emphasizing the importance of preserving the unity of the Gulf, of developing joint action in the interest of the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council and their citizens, and to achieve stability and prosperity in the region, ”WAM said.
The two sides praised Saudi Arabia’s efforts to host the latest GCC summit which resulted in the AlUla Declaration, and expressed their gratitude to the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf Al-Sabah for his efforts.
Since the agreement, air and travel links have resumed between Qatar and the four states.
