Saudis Welcome Qatar back

Iíve Been Thinking:
Saudi Arabia has announced that they are opening an embassy in Qatar.
The announcement was thrown out as a nonchalant comment about the opening of new Saudi embassies by Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister, Faisal bin Farhan.
The Saudi foreign minister was speaking to journalists in Riyadh when he was asked about embassy re-openings.
This revelation signals that relations between Qatar and the other Sunni countries are on the mend. Thatís big news because Qatar was isolated from the other Sunni countries after they sided with Iran against the other Sunni nations.
Now it looks like that the divide is narrowing and that Qatar is coming back into the community of Sunni Gulf nations.
It is clear that the Trump initiative in the Middle East was successful. Iran was sidelined and now Qatar wants to come back to the security of the Sunni fold, but many in the Sunni world are still skeptical of their real intentions.
Qatarís move to side with Iran caused serious pain to the Sunni community. But if Saudi Arabia is willing to trust them other nations will probably follow along.
