Signs of an imminent end for the crisis between Qatar and the other four Gulf States have been emerging recently. After the high-level Qatari participation at the GCC summit and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain's participation in the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar led to the speculation that the regional rift could come to an end.

Yesterday, we published an article mentioning all the recent developments that show the signs of easing disputes between Qatar and the blockading countries.

However, according to Bloomberg, a top United Arab Emirates official casts his doubt on ending Qatar blockade.

“I am convinced that every crisis has an end, and sincere and sustainable solutions are in the interest of the region,” U.A.E. Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Twitter. “The absence of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad from the Riyadh summit was due to poor judgment," he added.
