    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, JANUARY 8 - The borders between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar will reopen Saturday after more than three years of a land, sea and air blockade imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, said Emirati Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash on Friday, cited by pan-Arab media. On Thursday, Gargash announced that trade relations between Abu Dhabi and Doha will resume within a week, but that it will take more time to bring diplomatic relations back to normal. In 2017, Saudi Arabia led a group of countries hostile to Qatar, accused of supporting terrorism for its closeness to the Muslim Brotherhood and its alliance with Turkey. In recent days, after a long mediation by Kuwait and the United States, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, along with the Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, announced the end of the Gulf crisis. The Emirates do not have land borders with Qatar, whose territory borders only Saudi Arabia, but the government of Abu Dhabi is the first to announce the reopening of borders with Doha.(ANSAmed).
