This could be a breakthrough in the dispute between Doha and neighboring Arab states, reported Reuters.

"During the call, the Emir of Qatar expressed his desire to sit at the dialogue table and discuss the demands of the four countries to ensure the interests of all," Saudi state news agency SPA reported.

The details will be announced later after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia concludes an understanding with the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt.

The content of the call received by Saudi Crown Prince from the Emir of Qatar was changed minutes after it was over, reported Saudi Foreign Ministry.

Saudi Arabia declared as a result that no dialogue or communication will take place with Qatar authorities until a clear statement confirming its position is made public, and that Qatar's statements are in agreement with its obligations.
