DOHA, Qatar — The gulf state of Qatar restored diplomatic relations with Egypt on Wednesday, joining eight other Arab countries in ending the isolation imposed after the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty of 1979.

Arab countries began resuming relations with Cairo after an Arab League summit last week in Jordan, which left the decision to individual governments. The 21-member league suspended Egypt's membership in 1979.
