Morocco and Qatar agreed Saturday to normalize relations, which were broken off earlier this year, official Moroccan television TVM reported. 

The decision was taken during a meeting between Morocco's King Mohammed VI and Qatari Emir Seikh Hamad Bin Khalifa al-Thani on the sidelines of an extraordinary summit of the Arab league in Cairo. 

Following their meeting, TVM reported, the Moroccan king told his ambassador to Doha, recalled in June, to resume his post "immediately". 

Rabat had recalled its ambassador after Qatar voted in favor of Germany hosting the 2006 football World Cup, rather than support the Moroccan bid – RABAT (AFP)
