UAE, allies do not trust Qatar: FM Gargash

"In all our deals there is a provision for a so-called force majeure..."

The statement said that the three countries and their diplomatic missions "feel sorry" for Al Hussein's statement at a time when negotiations remain ongoing regarding the crisis.

The UAE foreign minister, Anwar Gargash, said that his country and its allies did not trust Qatar to change its behaviour and end support for groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.

Several Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and some other states have supported the isolation and sanctions imposed by Saudi on Qatar. Jordan and Djibouti reduced the level of their diplomatic missions in Qatar.

More trouble for Trump's travel ban; friend suggests he might fire Mueller
Ruddy was asked again later in the interview if Trump was actually contemplating firing Mueller, to which he replied, "Yes". Mueller, "he has no intention to do so", the White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters late Tuesday.

"Saudi Arabia and some of the region's Arab countries have become a puppet of the United States of America, and pre-planned tensions in the region will only have the U.S. exploit resources of Arab-Islamic countries" and intensify an arms race among Arab states, Major General Seyed Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Sunday.

But the dispute is unfolding against a backdrop of long-standing irritation with Qatar among its larger Sunni Arab neighbors in the Persian Gulf.

"Unfortunately, some Arab states were silent when it came to Qatar".

Social media platform Twitter briefly suspended the account of Qatar-based broadcaster Al-Jazeera Arabic early Saturday.

A single shot left Scalise, 51, with a shattered bone in his left hip and internal injuries that caused severe bleeding. Hodgkinson, who was shot by police and later died, apparently had been living out of his van in Alexandria since March.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are widely known to be aiding an assortment of Takfiri militants fighting to topple the Syrian government. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the Gulf crisis in a trilateral phone conversation with Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and French president Emmanuel Macron, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency. They are demanding far greater concessions from Qatar than they ever did in the past - such as closing Al-Jazeera and expelling Hamas leaders - in return for restoring ties.

One of the aspects of independent Qatari policy-making with which the Saudis differed was Doha's establishing a trade office in Tel Aviv in 1996.

Analysts say the steps Saudi Arabia has led in taking against Qatar are actually about showing who is boss in the Arabian Peninsula and that there will be no deviation from Saudi hegemony.

Saudi Arabia also sealed its land border with Qatar, which relies heavily on imports for food and raw materials.
