The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt suspended trade, travel and diplomatic ties with Qatar on June 5, 2017, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism.

However, during the GCC Summit in Saudi, the states were able to find a “resolution to all areas of difference,” and agreed to a “restoration of all diplomatic ties,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said.

“It will be a strong and important foundation to the future of the region and its stability.”
