The foreign ministers of Qatar and Maurita, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Th and Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, respectively, have discussed the possibility of restoring diplomatic relations severed in 2017, the Qatari Foreign Minister said.
"I met with my brother Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Mauritans Abroad today in Doha. We reviewed bilateral relations and the resumption of diplomatic relations between our brotherly countries," al-Th wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
Maurita's foreign minister visited Doha on Sunday, for the first time in over three and a half years.
Maurita severed diplomatic relations with Qatar in 2017, after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut relations with Doha over its perceived support of terrorism, something that Qatar has repeatedly denied.
In January, a reconciliation agreement was signed with Qatar at the Saudi-hosted 41st summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the three-and-a-half-year-long sea, air and land blockade of Qatar was lifted. (/Sputnik)
