Speaking at a forum organised by the Arab Centre for Research and Policy Studies in Doha, Qatar's Foreign Minister, Mohamed Al-Thani stated, Qatar has accepted the invitation to attend the summit, amid the region's worst political crisis in years.

Officials from Saudi Arabia, Oman and Qatar arrived in Kuwait today ahead of the Gulf summit which is due to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"I will attend the ministerial council tomorrow and the emir will attend the summit", said the minister.

"It is important that the GCC system remains alive", he added.

The summit will start on 5 December, the six-month anniversary of the start of the crisis.

"Almighty God has ordered people in dispute to move to just reconciliation because they are brothers in faith", said the statement, in reference to the Gulf crisis which erupted in early June.

It was unclear who would represent the other members of the GCC at the gathering.

Qatar denies the accusations, describing attempts to diplomatically isolate it as a violation of global law and its national sovereignty. Doha denies the allegations.

First Deputy Kuwaiti Prime Minister and FM Sheikh Sabah Khalid al-Hamad al-Sabah said during the opening of Monday's meeting that the GCC is a "constant project" that seeks to establish strong Gulf bonds in order to preserve independence and development.
