The Qatari Emiri Court announced, on Monday evening, that Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani will lead his country’s delegation at the 41st Gulf summit scheduled for Tuesday in the city of Al-Ula, northwest of Saudi Arabia, according to a statement.

Turkey supported the decision of both the regimes, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, in support of ending the crisis in the Gulf region. There are reports that this decision was motivated by the President of Turkey during his friendly visit to Doha in the month of July 2020. Erdogan visited Qatar along with the Treasury and Finance Minister Pratt Albayrak, and Defense Khulusi Aqar.

Earlier Monday, Kuwait’s foreign minister, Ahmed Nasser Al-Sabah, said in a statement, on television, that it had been agreed to reopen the airspace and the land and sea borders between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, as of Monday evening.

Since June 5, 2017, Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt have imposed a land, air, and sea blockade on Qatar, claiming its support for terrorism, which Doha denies, and considers it an “attempt to undermine its sovereignty and independent decision.”
