The ambassador was a recalled in February after an Egyptian official accused Doha of supporting terrorism
Qatar has returned its ambassador to Cairo, six weeks after recalling him in response to an Egyptian official accusing the Gulf state of supporting terrorism.
The Egyptian envoy to the Arab League, Tareq Adel, was quoted in Egyptian media as criticising Qatar for expressing reservations over the Egyptian air strikes in Libya in February and accusing Doha of supporting terrorism and deviating from Arab consensus.
Qatar had protested Egypt’s “unilateral” airstrikes carried out in response to the beheading of 21 captive Egyptian Christians by an ISIL affiliate there.
The ambassador resumed his work Tuesday, after returning to Egypt with the emir of Qatar to attend an Arab League summit last weekend, Associated Press said.
Cairo and Doha have been at odds since the Egyptian military overthrew President Muhammad Mursi following mass protests against him.
Mursi was a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that Qatar supports but which has been declared a terrorist organisation by other Gulf states and Egypt.
