Qatari Emir Not At­tend­ing Arab Sum­mit in Saudi Ara­bia


DHAHRAN (Reuters) - Qatar will not be rep­re­sented by a se­nior of­fi­cial at an Arab sum­mit tak­ing place in Saudi Ara­bia on Sun­day, in a sign that a nearly year-old dis­pute be­tween Per­sian Gulf Arab neigh­bors is still a long way from be­ing re­solved. Saudi Ara­bia, the United Arab Emi­rates, Bahrain and Egypt sev­ered diplo­matic and trans­port ties with Qatar in June 2017, ac­cus­ing it of sup­port­ing ter­ror­ism. Doha de­nies the charges and says the boy­cott is an at­tempt to im­pinge on its sovereignty. The Qatari del­e­ga­tion will be headed by Doha’s per­ma­nent rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the Arab League, Saif bin Muqad­dam al-Buainain, the state news agency said with­out elab­o­rat­ing.
