Gulf leaders end Qatar row at Saudi summit

Gulf leaders have signed an agreement ending their three-year diplomatic rift with Qatar at a summit in Saudi Arabia.

The Al-Ula agreement, which was brokered by Kuwait and the United States, ends the dispute that began in mid-2017 when a Saudi-led bloc severed diplomatic, trade and travel ties with Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-Gulf country Egypt had accused Qatar of supporting Islamist militant groups, an accusation that officials in Doha deny.

Qatar’s ruling emir arrived in Saudi Arabia and was greeted with an embrace by its crown prince on Tuesday following an announcement that the kingdom would end its years-long embargo on the tiny Gulf Arab state.
