Oman has reconciled with the United Arab Emirates after Kuwaiti mediation succeeded in resolving tensions over an alleged spy ring, a Foreign Ministry Official said.

Last month, Oman said it dismantled a spy ring linked to the UAE that targeted government and military operations. The UAE strongly denied the allegations and the case marked a rare display of tensions between the close allies and neighbors.

The Official said Kuwait’s Emir, HH Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah accompanied UAE Vice President Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashed Al Maktoum, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan and others to Oman on Thursday and met with Oman’s ruler, HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

The Kuwaiti ruler has already shuttled between the two Gulf neighbors whose relations were strained after Oman accused UAE of operating a spy ring targeting the government, Kuwait’s Al Jarida newspaper reported.
