Doha recalled its ambassador to Tehran in January 2016 following attacks on Saudi Arabia's embassy in Iran by some demonstrators in protest to Riyadh's execution of a prominent Shiite cleric.

After restoring full diplomatic relations with Iran on Thursday, Qatar has started work on "patching up a new radical ideology" in the region as foundation of this growing alliance, The Dependent has learnt.

The diplomatic crisis, the worst since the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iraq and the subsequent Persian Gulf War, has seen the Arab nations cut ties to Qatar, which hosts a major United States military base and will be the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Taking into account this sharp deterioration of ties between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, in the first place, he said, Doha now needs more support from Iran.

On Thursday, the Qatari Foreign Ministry accused the African country of joining a "campaign of blackmail" when the Chad government made a decision to close Qatar's embassy earlier this week. With Qatar announcing that it would reinstate its ambassador to Iran, it sent out a clear defiance message that the Gulf diplomatic crisis would not end any time soon.

One of those demands was that Qatar further downgrade ties with Iran.

On Wednesday, the Central African nation of Chad announced it would close its embassy in Doha, accusing Qatar of trying to destabilize it from neighboring Libya.

In recent days, however, Saudi Arabia announced it would allow Qataris to make the annual hajj pilgrimage, which is required of all able-bodied Muslims once in their life.

"Given that a formal escalation in terms of sanctions is probably off the table for now, we're seeing this informal pressure on try and perhaps stir the pot", the professor said.

The Qatari decision was conveyed by foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani during a phone call with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif to discuss "bilateral relations and means of boosting and developing them", Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said.
