The borders will reopen under a deal towards resolving a political dispute.

Saudi Arabia will reopen its borders and airspace to Qatar, the Kuwaiti foreign minister said Monday, more than three years after Riyadh sealed both and led an alliance to boycott Doha.

“Based on (Kuwait’s ruler Emir) Sheikh Nawaf’s proposal, it was agreed to open the airspace and land and sea borders between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Qatar, starting from this evening,” said Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Ahmad Nasser Al-Sabah on state TV.

The borders will reopen under a deal towards resolving a political dispute that led Riyadh and its allies to impose a boycott on Qatar.
