Gulf states agree deal to end Qatar tensions

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia: Gulf foreign ministers on Thursday agreed on a deal to end months of unprecedented tension between Qatar and other members of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council, a statement said.

At an extraordinary meeting in Riyadh, the ministers agreed that the policies of GCC member states should not undermine the "interests, security and stability" of each other.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain recalled their ambassadors from Qatar last month, accusing it of meddling in their internal affairs and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

The other GCC member states are Kuwait and Oman.
