Senegal has decided to send its ambassador back to Doha, after being previously summoned for consultation, it was announced yesterday.
His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani held yesterday evening a telephone conversation with Macky Sall, the President of Senegal, the official Qatar News Agency (QNA) said.
During the phone call, the two sides discussed bilateral relations and means of boosting them in various fields.
The latest developments in the Middle East, especially the Gulf crisis, were also reviewed, QNA added.
An official statement from Dakar said Senegal is encouraging the continuation of the ongoing initiatives to reach a peaceful settlement of the crisis between Qatar and its neighbouring states. “Senegal is ready to contribute to all efforts in this direction,” it added.
Senegal’s foreign ministry had announced on June 7 that it would recall its ambassador in Qatar for consultations after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt cut diplomatic relations with Qatar on June 5.
The Saudi-led bloc also imposed a blockade on Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting militant organisations. Qatar has denied the charges and the siege countries have not been able to produce even a single piece of evidence to prove their allegations.
The Republic of Senegal is a country in West Africa bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest.
