Relations within the Gulf have soured since the four Arab states accused Qatar of supporting terrorism.
The committee "will coordinate between the two countries in all military, political, economic, trade and cultural fields", according to a decree issued by UAE President Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
"We know that in the past some countries outright refused to be a part of any summit that had Qatar in it but Kuwait's success lies in bringing people from all Gulf countries together on a table for the first time since the beginning of the siege".
"Most people in the GCC have been very vocal about their opinions of the Gulf crisis on social media but they were nearly unanimous in their praise for the efforts of the Kuwaiti leadership in recent months to resolve the crisis", Tahir explained.

It remains unclear if other GCC member states will be invited to join the new block.
GCC chief Abdullatif al-Zayyani told the meeting that the region's difficulties coupled with security and political challenges required members to consolidate solidarity and unity.
