Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud has said that a resolution of the Gulf crisis is in sight, with all nations involved “on board” and final agreement expected soon, according to Al Jazeera.

Prince Faisal had also said that a breakthrough was imminent. In a statement to AFP news agency, he said “We are in full coordination with our partners in this process and the prospects that we see are very positive towards a final agreement. The eventual resolution will involve all parties concerned”.

When asked if the dispute was moving towards a full settlement, he said: “What we envision is a resolution that covers all aspects and is satisfactory to all parties involved and that it would happen soon”.

The State of Qatar has continuously rejected the accusations as baseless and also highlighted its readiness for dialogue.

When asked if Saudi Arabia would alter or drop the list of demands, Prince Faisal said: “The best I can say right now, not to prejudice the ongoing discussions, is that the resolution will be satisfactory to all.”

Recently, His Excellency Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani expressed Qatar's optimism for a solution to the Gulf crisis and said that in Qatar we are very positive and always treat any initiative that brings peace in the region positively.

His Excellency stressed the need to end this crisis on the basis of mutual respect and the equal rights of all countries and all peoples of the region, and to achieve the interest of our people.

His Excellency added that he doesn't think that any country, including Qatar, has the right to impose conditions and demands on other countries, stressing that he believes that all problems and disagreements can be solved through dialogue and discussion so that we can face the challenges that the world is currently going through, which include dangerous situations such as the Covid-19 pandemic, pointing out that he believes that cooperation is necessary for every country or region to move forward in this direction.
