The United Arab Emirates will reopen its borders to Qatar beginning Saturday, the Emirati Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation announced Friday, days after the Gulf countries agreed to resume ties with Doha.  

“The UAE will begin to end all measures taken against the State of Qatar,” the ministry said in a statement carried by the official WAM News Agency. “The government will work to re-open all land, sea and air ports for inbound and outbound movement.”
