Gulf States Lift Blockade on Qatar

Gulf leaders have put aside their differences to end a three-and-a-half year rift. It's being called the 'solidarity and stability agreement' by the Gulf leaders who signed it. And that's exactly the effect they hope it will have. The Al-Ula Declaration brings an end to a diplomatic freeze and trade blockade imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain. But why now? And does it have anything to do with President-elect Joe Biden or Iran?
