Saudi Arabia will reopen its airspace, land and sea border to Qatar, said Kuwait’s foreign minister.

According to a statement made by Kuwait’s foreign minister in a televised comment, the border will reopen Monday night.

The reopening of the borders comes on the eve of the 41st GCC Summit set in Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ula city.

“Based on (Kuwait’s ruler Emir) Sheikh Nawaf’s proposal, it was agreed to open the airspace and land and sea borders between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Qatar, starting from this evening,” says Kuwait’s foreign minister on state TV.

Meanwhile, Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani confirmed his attendance at the GCC Summit in Al-Ula.
