Saudi Arabia’s MBS On First Visit to Qatar Since End of Blockade

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has arrived in Doha on the third stop of his tour of the Gulf states, the first visit since a years-long blockade of Qatar was withdrawn in January.

Crown Prince Mohammed was received on arrival by Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, after which the two leaders held meetings on Wednesday night.

The visit came after Saudi Arabia took steps to end the diplomatic crisis that deeply divided the international community, frayed societal ties and tore apart a longstanding alliance of Gulf states.
