CAIRO - 3 March 2020: Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry held a meeting on Wednesday with his Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, according to Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez.
The meeting was held on the sidelines of ministerial meetings of the Arab League, the spokesman added.
On January 20, Egypt's Foreign Ministry announced that Egypt and Qatar have exchanged official memoranda on resuming diplomatic relations.
The move falls within the framework of implementing mutual obligations stated in the Al Ula Declaration, the ministry said in a press release.
The move has been taken based on the mutual obligations of the Al-Ula declaration that has been signed at the 41st Gulf Cooperation Council summit in Saudi Arabia.
The Al-Ula agreement ended a boycott on Qatar by the Arab quartet, which includes Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
On January 18, the first Egyptian flight took off from Cairo to Qatar following the milestone agreement.
