January 16th local time, the Saudi Foreign Minister revealed that the Saudi Embassy in Qatar will reopen in the near future.
On the same day, Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal Bin Farhan held a joint press conference with visiting
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Overseas Chinese of Jordan in Riyadh on the same day that Saudi relations between Saudi Arabia and Qatar are actively recovering, and the
Saudi Embassy in Doha, the capital of Qatar, will also reopen in the near future.
But he did not disclose details about the opening time and whether Saudi Arabia will re-post ambassadors.
In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt announced the severance of diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed sanctions and blockades on Qatar, including the closure of airspace, on the grounds of Qatar’s “support for terrorism” and “destruction of regional security”.
The Saudi Embassy in Qatar was also closed.
Under the mediation of Kuwait and other countries, Saudi Arabia and Qatar announced on the evening of January 4 that their airspace would resume opening to each other, and signed the Euler Declaration, which symbolizes the end of Qatar’s severance of diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt the next day.
