Trump calls for diplomatic measures to resolve Qatar crisis

Doha Qatar

The announcement comes a day after Trump spoke with Saudi King Salman and urged an end to a months-long diplomatic dispute with Qatar.

Russia, which voiced readiness to contribute to resolution of the confrontation, is trying to maintain a delicate balance as it has close ties with Qatar and is cooperating with Saudi Arabia to stabilize oil markets and resolve the Syrian issue.

Russia's foreign minister is in Kuwait for the first leg in a three-nation tour of Gulf Arab states over the ongoing Qatar diplomatic crisis.

Mariah's two neighbours who had vowed to look after her throughout their stay in Saudi Arabia have also been included in the VIP list to ensure that she is comfortable and at ease.

Saudi Arabia, together with Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt, have cut ties with Qatar, accusing the latter of supporting terrorism and maintaining ties with Iran.

However, Saudi King Salman in mid-August ordered the opening of the land border to Qatari pilgrims and authorised sending Saudi aircraft to ferry pilgrims from Doha after the intercession of a member of Qatar's royal family.

Trump's siding with Saudis became more apparent on June 8, when the White House said he had talked to Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, asking him to help "prevent the financing of terrorist organizations and stop the promotion of extremist ideology".

The enormous pressure seems to have failed to bring Qatar to its knees, as the country has strengthened ties with Iran and other regional players like Turkey.

"Qatar welcomes the Russian position, and all efforts from friendly countries that support the Kuwaiti mediation process and a diplomatic solution to this crisis unconditionally", he added.
