Saudi Arabia ends its Qatar blockade, but the dispute is not over.
The agreement was announced on the evening of the 4th of January 2021, bringing to a close one of the worst diplomatic crises in the Gulf region’s history.
With a solemn but visibly pleased air, the Kuwaiti foreign minister made the announcement on the evening of 4 January after a phone call involving Kuwait’s Emir Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince and defence minister Mohammed bin Salman (MbS).
