Qatar boycotters dismiss remarks by Kuwaiti emir

Posted September 12, 2017

"We're going to give it our best".

"We will be most successful with a united GCC". Still, the dispute has dragged on for more than three months, even after Tillerson shuttled between the parties in July and dispatched two other USA envoys to bolster the 88-year-old Kuwaiti emir's initiative.

President Donald J. Trump will welcome Amir Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah of Kuwait to the White House for an official working visit on September 7, 2017.

Doha denies the claims and accuses the other countries of an attack on its sovereignty.

On June 22, the Saudi-led group issued a 13-point list of demands, including the shutdown of Al Jazeera, limiting ties with Iran, and expelling Turkish troops stationed in the country as a prerequisite to lifting the blockade.

"A great part of them will be resolved", he said.

Indian PM says shares Myanmar's concerns over Rakhine violence
Myanmar's government has yet to respond as to whether or not fresh mines have been laid in recent weeks, Reuters said. Asked whether he was disappointed in Suu Kyi, the secretary-general said: "It's not a matter of being disappointed".

The emir said he believed Qatar was willing to sit down and discuss the demands and that he was optimistic a "solution will come in the very near future".

Trump has sent conflicting signals about where he stands on the dispute between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt. Trump initially appeared to side with Saudi Arabia, but then instructed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to support the Kuwaiti mediation effort. "The hope has not ended yet".

The White House released its readout of the call after Qatar's ambassador to the USA said the country would donate $30 million to help Texans recover from Harvey.

The U.S. president said he appreciated Kuwait's role as a mediator "very much", but said he, too, would be "willing to be the mediator".

The four countries commended US President Donald Trump's stance and firm assertion that the only way to resolve the crisis is to put an end to supporting and financing terrorism, as well as his unwillingness to resolve the crisis unless such a way is achieved.
