Qatar - Bahrain – United Arab Emirates – Resumption of diplomatic relations (19 April 2023)


France welcomes the announcement that Qatar and Bahrain have resumed diplomatic relations and reopened the embassies between Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. We commend the role played by the Gulf Cooperation Council in this regard.

The resumption of diplomatic relations between these countries is an important step toward strengthening regional security and stability in the Gulf, a priority that France supports and will continue to foster, together with its regional partners, especially within the “Baghdad format” designed to promote cooperation and security in the Gulf.
