Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have announced the restoration of their diplomatic representation, the Qatar local media reported on Monday.

According to the report, Qatar’s embassy in Abu Dhabi, its consulate in Dubai, and the UAE’s embassy in Doha will reopen on Monday.

Both sides stressed that the significant step reflects the determination of the leaderships of both countries and contributes to the advancement of joint Arab initiatives, fulfilling the aspirations of the two brotherly peoples, the report said.

In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt announced severing diplomatic ties with Qatar, citing Qatar’s alleged support for terrorism and destabilisation of the region.

Qatar has denied these accusations.

In 2021, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt announced the restoration of diplomatic relations with Qatar on the sidelines of the 41st Gulf Cooperation Council Summit in Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia.

However, due to a lack of consensus on certain issues, the full normalisation process between the countries and Qatar has been delayed.
