The United Arab Emirates will reopen all its sea and air entry points with Qatar starting Saturday, state news agency WAM reported on Friday.
Saudi Arabia announced a breakthrough in ending a dispute between Gulf Arab states and Qatar at the 41st GCC Summit held in the Al-Ula governorate in Saudi Arabia, on Tuesday, with its foreign minister saying Riyadh and its allies would restore all ties with Doha severed in mid-2017.
A UAE official told a virtual news conference on Thursday that Arab states boycotting Qatar could resume travel and trade links with Doha within a week of the US-backed agreement, but restoring diplomatic ties would require more time.
UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said measures would include "practical measures of airlines, shipping and trade".
Qatar Airways on Thursday said it would begin rerouting some of its flights through Saudi airspace.
