King Salman receives Qatari Emir

Manama: Saudi King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud on Tuesday received Qatar’s Emir Shaikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani in the capital Riyadh.

The visit was the first by Shaikh Tamim to hold talks with King Salman who assumed power on January 23 following the death of his brother King Abdullah.

Shaikh Tamim is the third Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) leader to be received by King Salman in as many days.

The Saudi monarch on Sunday received Kuwait’s Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahamd Al Jaber Al Sabah for talks that focused on the situation in the region and the latest developments, the official news agencies of both countries said.

On Monday, King Salman received General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who led a high-level UAE delegation to Riyadh.

Last week, Shaikh Tamim received Saudi Prince Mohammad Bin Nayef, in the Qatari capital Doha.

According to official news agencies, the meeting reviewed the relations between Qatar and Saudi Arabia and ways of enhancing them in various fields.

The two leaders also discussed the regional and international situation and exchanged views on issues of common concern, official reports said.

Qatar in December hosted the annual GCC summit following the settlement of the worst diplomatic crisis to hit the alliance since it was established in 1981.

The GCC comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The summit became possible only after the member countries endorsed an agreement that ironed out differences and defined a common approach to all issues of common interest.

The late Saudi King Abdullah played a crucial role in reaching the accord.
