Pakistan on Tuesday has welcomed the Saudi move to end the political rift with Qatar by opening its borders to the land, air and sea borders between the two countries.

According to the details, in a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said we also appreciate other steps being taken by the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council, which will contribute to the resolution of outstanding issues between the countries of the organization persisting for almost four years.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said Pakistan lauds the positive role played by the Emir of Kuwait towards the resolution of the differences between the countries of the GCC.

The Spokesperson said we hope that the GCC Summit, being held today in Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia, will further build on these encouraging developments and lead to enhanced confidence and cooperation among the countries of the organization.

He said Pakistan continues to accord high importance to its relationship with the Gulf Cooperation Council, as well as its bilateral relations with all GCC countries.

It is worth mentioning that Kuwait and the United States have been trying to end the long-sought dispute in which Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and non-Gulf Egypt severed diplomatic, trade, and travel ties with Qatar in mid-2017 after it was found to be supporting terrorism.

However, Qatar has repeatedly denied the allegations and said there was “no legitimate justification” for the severance of relations.
