Saudi Arabia poised to boost ties with Qatar mid steady reconciliation

Saudi Arabia in letter to Qatar’s ruler expressed willingness to bolster ties in many areas as both countries continue to thaw ties following years of diplomatic feud.
Saudi Crown Prince, Mohamed bin Salman, the facto ruler of Gulf greatest power, wrote a letter to Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the office of the Qatari leader said.
Amid continued reconciliation efforts, the letter focused on ways to strengthen bilateral relations as well as regional and international developments, the office known as the Amiri Diwan noted.
The letter was handed to the Sheikh Al Thani by the kingdom’s ambassador Prince Mansour bin Khalid bin Farhan during his meeting with the Qatari ruler.
Both countries established new relations in January this year during the regional summit in the kingdom following a reconciliation agreement that put an end to more than a three-year diplomatic row.
Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain leagued against in June 2017 by cutting their ties with tiny-Gulf country over alleged accusation that Doha sponsors terrorism.
The gas-rich country had vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
