DOHA (Dispatches) -- Diplomatic sources said Tuesday negotiations between Saudi Arabia and Qatar to resolve a bitter bilateral conflict and end a Persian Gulf regional diplomatic and economic rift have broke down soon after starting. Qatar’s priority in the discussions was to restore free movement for its citizens to the four countries – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – that are involved in an economic and diplomatic embargo against it, access to the airspace of those states and reopening Qatar’s only land border shared with Saudi Arabia, four Western diplomats in the Persian Gulf region and two sources familiar with Qatari thinking said.
