Donald Trump offers to mediate in Qatar crisis

Trump's holding a joint news conference at the White House with Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah.

In a phone conversation on August 30, Trump told the Saudi monarch that a diplomatic resolution was necessary in order to fulfill a commitment Washington and its regional allies had made to stay united while fighting terrorism.

Trump said all the countries involved — members of the Gulf Cooperation Council — are "essential partners" with the United States in efforts to crack down on extremism, including the fight against Islamic State group.

"We have great relationships with all of them right now; maybe better than we've ever had", Mr Trump said.

President Donald Trump on Thursday expressed a willingness to be a mediator between Qatar and other Arab countries accusing it of supporting terrorism. He urged the parties to the dispute - Qatar on one side and Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the other - to embrace the emir's initiative.

"Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are all essential U.S. partners in this effort". It recently restored full diplomatic ties to Iran, with which it shares a massive offshore natural gas field that makes its citizens among the world's wealthiest.

"The key thing is whether Trump stands on this [GCC crisis]". He previously has described how Arab leaders criticized Qatar for such terror financing during a regional summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

Sheikh Sabah claimed that the Qatari government was ready to discuss a list of 13 demands from its Arab neighbors. In July, however, Kushner said that finding a peace deal might not be possible. We'll come together very quickly. "The hope has not ended yet".

The boycotting countries say a military intervention "has not been and will not be considered" to end the crisis.

Trump also spoke to Qatar's al-Thani on Thursday.

"The US president was quite restraint - he didn't use any inflammatory language and didn't escalate his declarations against any particular country", Bishara said.

Trump followed, "Well that is a problem we will get resolved and I'm very, very honored and happy to know that you have problems with the media also". "I think we'll have something solved". It is a three-day visit as part of the second annual U.S. -Kuwait Strategic Dialogue, according to The National.
