Trump eases Qatar critique, offers to mediate spat


The United States is encouraging the countries to work out their differences, however, since the announcement of the diplomatic rift, President Trump has tweeted that it is "so good" to see his visit to Saudi Arabia is "already paying off" and applauded the Middle East for "no longer funding Radical Ideology".

Qatar says its foreign minister has spoken to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "The nation of Qatar has unfortunately been funding terrorism, and at a very high level", President Trump said during an appearance alongside Romanian President Klaus Iohannis at the White House. Aircraft that fly out of Qatar - including fighter jets, drones and refueling planes - can be relocated to a number of other bases in the region including in Iraq, Turkey, Kuwait and Bahrain and off aircraft carriers, the officials said.

The airline has suspended operations to and from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt after the countries severed all ties with Qatar on Monday.

His statement came even as the UAE announced on Wednesday that it had ordered Qatar Airways to shut down its offices across the country.

That was enough, it seemed, to persuade Qatar the US wasn't abandoning its strategic partner. He also pointedly asked Saudi Arabia and others to ease their blockade on Qatar.

There were reports he was to head to Qatar after the UAE trip.

Despite Tillerson's plea for "no further escalation", Trump's sharp comments were likely to further embolden Saudi Arabia and the others in their bid to isolate Qatar.

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

Trump waded into the dispute on Tuesday, but seemed to only muddy the waters. Tillerson's carefully crafted statement urges the emir of Qatar to do more to stem terrorist financing but adds that "others must also continue to eliminate factions of support for violent organizations within their own borders".

Al-Udeid, located in the Qatari desert, is home to some 10,000 US troops and is a crucial hub in the fight against Daesh terrorists in Syria and Iraq.

Emirati officials said they perceived Trump's tweets as a sign Qatar shouldn't count on America taking its side despite USA having some 10,000 troops based in the country's al-Udeid Air Base.

Migrant CARE executive director Wahyu Susilo said the crisis would sooner or later make an impact on the presence and safety of Indonesian migrant workers in the region.

"But you have to be able to tell your friend or your brother when they are doing the right thing and when they are doing the wrong thing", Jubeir said in a joint press conference with Gabriel.

Qatar isn't completely isolated.

"In our opinion recent events have the potential to destabilise these nonresident deposits and provoke an outflow", said S&P Global Ratings.

"There are numerous uncertainties regarding Qatar's response, the extent to which these measures will be imposed, and their longevity", said the ratings agency. Turkey and Qatar have both provided support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and backed rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The stated goal is to force Qatar to stop cosying up to Saudi Arabia's rival Iran and bankrolling Islamist groups across the region.
