Mohammed Abdulsalam: Saudi-Qatari rapprochement proves strategy of siege and aggression has failed

The head of the National Delegation of Yemen, Mohammad Abdulsalam, has on Monday commented on the agreement signed to end the three-year diplomatic rift of certain Gulf countries with Qatar, at a summit in Saudi Arabia.

“What is happening at the Gulf states confirms that the policy of siege, war and aggression has led to a dead end,” Mohammad Abdulsalam said in a tweet.

Abdulsalam indicated that mutual respect is the safest and shortest way to achieve security and stability.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic, trade and travel ties with Qatar in mid-2017. The four boycotting countries had accused Qatar of supporting terrorism.

Doha denies the charges and says the embargo was aimed to curtail Qatar’s sovereignty.

Recently, Riyadh has reached an agreement with Doha to end the three-year feud, by reopening the Saudi airspace, as well as land and sea borders to Qatar as of Monday.
