- DOHA

Saudi

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)
