DECLARATION ON RESOLVING THE ‘GULF RIFT’ WELCOMED BY UN CHIEF - SECURITY COUNCIL BRIEFING

Remarks by United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres at the opening of the open VTC of the security Council on maintenance of international peace and security: Challenges of maintaining peace and security in fragile contexts.

The al Ula declaration, named after the Saudi Arabian city where the Summit was held, recognizes the importance of unity among the GCC states and aims to strengthen regional security, peace, stability and prosperity, according to a statement issued by a spokesperson for the UN chief.

Secretary-General António Guterres also welcomed the announcement on opening the airspace, land and sea borders between Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Qatar.

“The Secretary-General expresses his gratitude to those from the region and beyond, including the late Emir of Kuwait and late Sultan of Oman, who worked tirelessly towards resolving the Gulf rift,” the statement said.

Mr. Guterres “trusts that all countries concerned will continue to act in a positive spirit to strengthen their relations,” the statement added.

The political situation in the region had soured in 2017, with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severing diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar, alleging that it supported groups that they viewed as terrorist organizations and insisting that it comply with a list of demands. Qatar denied the allegations.
