There might not have been a better opportunity for Qatar to find its way back to the bosom of its neighbors than the last GCC foreign ministers meeting in Riyadh.

Many sought to analyze and interpret the recent developments as per their whims or according to what their alleged sources say. Truth is, only a few really know what the ministers really agreed on in Riyadh and what really went on behind the scenes.
