Salman invites Qatar emir to GCC summit
King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz has invited Qatar’s Emir Shaikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani to attend the Gulf Cooperation Council summit on December 9, despite an ongoing diplomatic crisis.
The invitation to Riyadh is significant as Qatar has been isolated by a group of countries led by Saudi Arabia since June 2017.
Qatar News Agency said in a tweet that the emir had received “an invitation from the King of Saudi Arabia” for the meeting on December 9. (Agencies)
