Qatar welcomes Saudi new Envoy

Qatar’s foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani welcomed Monday Saudi Arabia’s new ambassador in a sign of full flesh diplomatic détente between the two countries, following early this year agreement to end years-long strained relations.
Sheikh Mohammed assured Prince Mansour bin Khalid bin Farhan of all support to advance bilateral relations, state-run news agency QNA noted.
Prince Mansour’s appointment comes following the January agreement between Qatar on one hand and Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on the other hand, to end years of diplomatic row.
Saudi Arabia led from June 2017 until January this year a diplomatic boycott of Qatar over its alleged sponsorship for terrorism.
Qatar denied any wrongdoing and accused the boycotters of a smear campaign.
