There are two emergency Arab summits that are due to be held in Makkah on May 30th. Qatar had previously denied that it was invited to them.
According to the Arab News, Qatar’s foreign ministry now says that it has been invited to them.

The invitation to attend both summits was sent by King Salman to Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim Al Thani.
King Salman who will chair the summits has already arrived in the Holy City two days ago.
The summits will discuss the drone strikes on Saudi Arabia’s oil pumping stations and the attacks on the four vessels off the coast of the UAE that took place earlier this month.
