Egypt names ambassador to Qatar amid improving relations

Cairo: Egyptian President Abdul Fattah Al Sissi has appointed a new ambassador to Qatar as relations between the two Arab countries are improving after strains of more than three years.

Egypt’s Official Gazette published Al Sissi’s decree naming career diplomat Amr Al Sherbini as a new ambassador to Qatar.

Earlier this month, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukry visited Qatar, the first visit by such a senior Egyptian official to Doha since the two countries restored diplomatic ties earlier this year.

The step came weeks after Egypt signed a declaration at a Gulf summit held in the Saudi city of Al Ula in January ending a dispute between Qatar and a Saudi-led bloc including Cairo.
