Qatar Emir in Jordan for reconciliation talks

Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa al-Thani arrived in Amman Sunday to hold talks with King Abdullah II.

Jordan deported senior Hamas figures to Qatar in 1999 including Hamas exiled leader Khalid Mashaal, but a few months ago, Jordan and Qatar started reconciliation talks after a decade of cool ties.

The two countries agreed to open a new chapter in their ties after King Abdullah visited Doha earlier this year.

Jordan cooled the ties after boycotting the Arab summit conference which was called by Qatar during the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip in January to give a response against the assault that claimed 1434 Palestinians and wounded more than 5000.
