05 January, 15:19

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, JANUARY 5 - The Gulf states signed what Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman called "an accord for solidarity and stability" in the region, putting an end to three years of embargo against Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The signing took place at the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia, during which bin Salman thanked the US and Kuwait for their mediation that brought an end to the crisis. The prince highlighted the need to promote development in the region, "to face the challenges surrounding us, in particular the threat posed by the Iranian regime with its nuclear programme and ballistic missiles, aimed at sabotage and destruction". Qatar's alleged closeness to Tehran and radical Islamic groups is what led to the embargo. Bin Salman welcomed the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, for the first time to Saudi Arabia since the start of the crisis, with a hug, in an image published by local media.(ANSAmed).
