The For­eign Min­is­ter HE Dr Khaled bin Mo­hamed Al At­tiyah said on April 23 that the “Gulf dif­fer­ences” had come to an end and it was now up to the coun­tries that had re­called their am­bas­sadors from Doha to send them back.

Speak­ing at a joint news con­fer­ence with Kuwaiti First Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and For­eign Min­is­ter Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al Hamd Al Sabah, Al At­tiyah said that the GCC deal was struck with­out the par­ties mak­ing any con­ces­sions.

“The broth­ers in the GCC coun­tries have reached deals; this does not mean that con­ces­sions were made by any party,” Qatar News Agency quoted the For­eign Min­is­ter as say­ing.

He said that the dif­fer­ence of opin­ion be­tween Qatar and three GCC coun­tries – Saudi Ara­bia, UAE and Bahrain – was over and the mech­a­nism of the in­ter- Gulf agree­ment ham­mered out in Riyadh on April 17 was “clear cut”. Al At­tiyah com­mended the Emir of Kuwait HH Sheikh Sabah Al Ah­mad Al Jaber Al Sabah for spon­sor­ing the Riyadh agree­ment.
