Donald Trump offers to mediate Qatar crisis in call with Emir

But if the Saudi-led alliance against Qatar does not warm up to diplomatic initiatives by Kuwait, the U.S., Germany, or others, then it may not be Iran that tries to form such a counter-alliance; it might instead be our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Turkey. They need to make a decision; they can't have it both ways.

The United Arab Emirates welcomed "President Trump's leadership in challenging Qatar's troubling support for extremism".

Bahrain, Egypt, one of the governments in Libya, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the faction in the Yemen civil war backed by Saudi Arabia and the US broke diplomatic relations with the Qatar emirate Monday.

Gulf allies have repeatedly criticized Qatar for alleged support of the Muslim Brotherhood, a almost 100-year-old Islamist group considered a terrorist organization by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Bahrain's Information Affairs Ministry said Thursday that those who do publish material sympathetic to Qatar "will be held responsible", without elaborating.

In Berlin, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir called on Qatar to stop supporting "certain organizations", saying, "We don't have sufficient cooperation in this area".

The telephone talk came after a diplomatic row erupted between Qatar and the other Gulf nations. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states have accused Doha of supporting extremist groups, but Tillerson suggested that all sides needed to do more. He said he's hustling to arrange for 47 cargoes stuck in Jebel Ali port in the U.A.E. emirate of Dubai to be re-exported via Oman or Kuwait.

This time, Saudi Arabia has promised to "begin legal procedures for immediate understandings with brotherly and friendly countries and worldwide companies to apply the same procedures as soon as possible".

"Qatar needs to decide: Do you want to be in the pocket of Turkey, Iran and Islamic extremists?"

Qatar has denounced the allegations of terror funding as baseless and has received the support of its close ally Turkey, which has approved the deployment of troops to defend the emirate.

"Others must also continue to eliminate factions of support for violent organisations within their own borders", Tillerson said.

Noting that the blockade is also impairing USA and other global business activities in the region, Tillerson said it has created a hardship on the people of Qatar, and the people whose livelihoods depend on commerce with the Gulf nation. Doha is the largest exporter of natural liquefied gas in the world. The company is offering its customers refunds or rebookings.

This question takes on a very different meaning in the aftermath of Wednesday's coordinated terrorist attacks in Tehran, Iran's capital, which has not seen this level of violence since the 1980s.

"This situation is a strategic opportunity to seize, not a crisis to manage", he said. "So I am going to start to get concerned if this goes on for a month or two, not that I think they can't weather a month or two but because that gives us an idea that this isn't a quickly resolvable issue". "The situation has escalated to a point that it is hard to imagine" Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates "backing down without Qatari capitulation or regime change", he said.

Qatar's stock index has tumbled 9.7 per cent over the past three days, with high trading volumes suggesting some Gulf and worldwide investors were bailing out of the market and sending their money home. The measure tumbled more than 7 percent on Monday, the most since 2009.
