Saudi Arabia and Qatar sign final border maps

Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Saud Al-Faisal for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem Al-Thani for the State of Qatar today signed the final maps demarcating the two countries' land and sea borders. This development comes in line with the implementation of the border agreement signed on December 4, 1965, and the Madinah Joint Statement issued on December 20, 1992, which reflect the spirit of fraternity and solidarity that exists between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
