The permanent representative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations, Ambassador Abdullah Al-Muallami, considered that the crisis with Qatar could end within 24 hours.
"God willing, we hope so," Al-Mouallimi said, commenting on news of the approaching Gulf reconciliation in light of reports published by foreign newspapers. We have repeatedly said that the crisis with Qatar could end in 24 hours, if Qatar announces its retreat from previous positions, its support for terrorists, its granting of the media platform to extremist parties, and its interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries.“.
"If Qatar declares this and abides by it, then the problem will be solved," he said in a TV interview. There is no fateful or existential dispute between us and Qatar. We are one people and one country, and the Qatari brothers are an extension of the Kingdom and the Kingdom is an extension of them. Therefore, there is no justification for a permanent boycott in this regard, but the behavior of the Qatari leadership and the Qatari government at the present time is what stands in the way of such reconciliation.“.
