Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir said efforts would be made to resolve the conflict within the Gulf Cooperation Council

Trump's comments came after his top diplomat, Rex Tillerson, appealed to Saudi Arabia and its regional allies to ease their blockade of Qatar, saying it is hindering USA military actions in the region and the fight against the Islamic State terror group.

The statement said that Trump emphasised the importance of all countries in the region working together to prevent the financing of terrorist organisations and stop the promotion of extremist ideology. The move is a sign of support for the Gulf state in its dispute with its regional neighbors. It follows a previous listing of scores of organizations in 2014 by Saudi Arabia and the UAE during a previous spat with Qatar.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who initially offered to host a White House meeting to resolve the prevailing Gulf crisis, also attacked Doha, accusing the monarchy of sponsoring terrorism.

An official in Doha says Qatar has started talks with Iran and Turkey to secure food and water supplies after its biggest regional suppliers - Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - cut trade and diplomatic ties with the country earlier this week. The Arab countries aren't just recalling diplomats; they're also closing airspace to Qatar and restricting access by sea.

JEDDAH: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Qatar must do more, "more quickly" to combat extremism.

In a strong-worded opening remarks, Trump alleged that Qatar was funding terrorism at the "highest level" and asked other countries doing the same to stop with immediate effect.

Trump's lawyer denies he's being investigated
Well known in the Manhattan business circles that Trump inhabits, Kasowitz has a reputation as a bare-knuckles court brawler. It seems to me largely semantics, but the is-he-or-isn't-he argument stems from the latest push by the White House.


Among the individuals named is Youssef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian-born cleric considered a spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, a Sunni Islamist group.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan late on Thursday ratified two deals on deploying Turkish troops in Qatar and training the Gulf nation's gendarmerie, according to the presidency, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

The biggest U.S. air base in the Middle East is in Qatar and around 10,000 personnel work there in support of several allied operations in Iraq, Syria and around the region.

"Qatar has a history of supporting groups that span the spectrum of political expression, from activism to violence", he said during a news conference.

Then on Friday, Mr Gabriel spoke to Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani in the northern German town of Wolfenbuettel.
