The Emirates News Agency reported that official delegations from the UAE and Qatar have met in Kuwait to follow up on the Al-Ula summit statement, which announced the Gulf reconciliation after a crisis that began in June 2017.
The agency indicated that the two sides discussed, in their first meeting since the Al-Ula summit statement, joint mechanisms and procedures for implementing the statement.
The Emirates News Agency added that the two parties emphasized the importance of preserving Gulf cohesion and developing joint Gulf action, in the interest of the GCC countries and their citizens, and stability and prosperity in the region.
The Emirates News Agency stated that the two sides are the price of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to host the last Gulf summit, during which the Al-Ula statement was reached.
The two delegations also thanked the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, for the efforts of the State of Kuwait to heal the rift.
The Al-Ula summit, which was held in the Saudi city of Al-Ula on January 5, resulted in the signing of a reconciliation agreement that ended the blockade imposed by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on Qatar since June 2017.
