DOHA (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 24th February, 2021) Qatar and Egypt held on Tuesday the first talks in more than 3.5 years in Kuwait to normalize relations since the Saudi Arabia summit in early January, when the Arab countries that boycotted Qatar agreed to resolve the conflict with Doha, the Qatar news Agency reported.

The meeting discussed measures to be taken to strengthen joint work and bilateral relations, as well as to fulfill the desires of their peoples in building security and stable development.

The countries expressed gratitude to Saudi Arabia for hosting the last Gulf Summit, as well as to Kuwait for its efforts to overcome the split and its desire to promote joint Arab efforts.
