This meeting between the Kingdom and Qatar follows the third instance of talks between the UAE and Qatar on February 10, where representatives from the countries followed up on the AlUla agreement.

The AlUla Declaration ended the Gulf dispute with Qatar and restored ties with Doha. The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, had severed diplomatic, trade and transport ties with Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of supporting terrorism – a charge Doha denies.

In line with maintaining international peace, on February 14, Afghanistan’s Taliban officials met with representatives from Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar, among other Arab states, as the gulf region attempts to mediate and solve the turmoil in the South Asian country.
