On Sunday, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani revealed that Qatar’s leaders had accepted the invitation to attend the two-day event which is to be held in Kuwait City from Tuesday onwards. Saudi-led group of countries imposed a blockade against Qatar after 6 months.
At a forum in Qatar’s capital, Doha news agencies mentioned that Sheikh Mohammed said, "I will attend the ministerial council tomorrow and the emir will attend the summit,” addition to this “It is important that the GCC system remains still alive”
Kuwait sent out the invitation to all six GCC members but it was not mentioned whether all the leaders would attend.
The GCC is a political and economic alliance of countries in the Arabian Peninsula, including Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
At the time Sheikh Sabah, 5th Emir of Kuwait said, "Contrary to our wishes and hopes, the Gulf crisis has the potential of escalating; therefore, all of us must be fully aware of its potential consequences.”
The blockading countries have blamed Qatar of supporting "terrorism", maintaining cordial relations with Iran and meddling in the internal affairs of their countries - allegations the Qatari government has strongly denied.
