Qatar restores diplomatic ties with Iran

Qatar's ambassador to Iran Ali Bin Hamad al-Sulaiti returned to the Iranian capital Tehran on Friday after a 20-month hiatus.

Qatar's announced that its ambassador to Tehran would "return to resume his diplomatic duties" on its foreign ministry website on Thursday.

Qatar restored full diplomatic relations with Iran early Thursday, disregarding the demands of Arab nations now locked in a regional dispute with the energy-rich country that it lessen its ties to Tehran.

This averages at about 15 articles a day since the UAE, Saudi, Bahrain and Egypt severed land, sea and air links with Qatar at the beginning of June due the Gulf state's alleged links to terrorism.

Iran and Saudi Arabia will soon exchange diplomatic visits, Tehran said, in a possible sign of tensions easing after the archrivals cut ties a year ago. Iran has provided support to the Qatari economy by allowing Qatar's national carrier to use its airspace and by sending fresh food supplies to Doha.

On Thursday, the Qatari Foreign Ministry accused the African country of joining a "campaign of blackmail" when the Chad government chose to close Qatar's embassy earlier this week.
