A high-ranking Emirati official meets the Emir of Qatar in a rare visit: State media |  GCC news


UAE National Security Adviser and brother of the de facto ruler meets Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Doha, the Emir’s office and UAE state media report.

A high-ranking Emirati official held talks with the emir of Qatar in Doha, the first such visit in four years following an agreement earlier this year to end a bitter dispute.

The office of the Emir of Qatar and the official Emirates News Agency said that the National Security Adviser, Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan, brother of the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, met with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt agreed in January to end the row that cut ties with Qatar in mid-2017.

Riyadh and Cairo have appointed ambassadors to Doha, but Abu Dhabi and Manama have yet to do so.
