The Gulf Arab countries have resolved a six-month dispute with Qatar, which they had accused of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, an Omani minister told AFP Saturday.

"The crisis in the Gulf has been resolved," Oman's Foreign Minister Yussef bin Alawi bin Abdullah said after a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) meeting in the Saudi Red Sea resort of Jeddah.

Relations between Qatar and its Gulf neighbours Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain sank to a new low in March when the three governments withdrew their ambassadors from Doha, accusing it of meddling in their affairs and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

Oman's foreign minister said the ambassadors would return to their posts in Doha.

The six-nation GCC comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
