Trump speaks with Saudi, UAE and Qatar leaders

Qatar's ruler reached out to Saudi Arabia in a bid to end Gulf's worst diplomatic crisis for years

After the call, the state-run Saudi Press Agency said Crown Prince Mohammed would talk to Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - the other Arab nations boycotting Qatar - and then release details.

Saudi Arabia says it has suspended dialogue with Qatar to resolve an ongoing conflict with its Gulf neighbors, following a fresh row over a phone conversation between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Qatar's Emir Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

Qatar, hit by a land and air embargo imposed by a group of its most powerful neighbours, in early August introduced a visa-free entry programme for 80 nationalities to stimulate air transport and tourism.

The gas-rich emirate denies the claims and has accused the four countries of attacking its sovereignty with their demands.

Qatar, for its part, has staunchly refused to comply, denying charges that it supports terrorism and describing the ongoing embargo as a violation of global law and an infringement of its national sovereignty.

US President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference with Kuwait's Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah after their meetings at the White House in Washington, September 7, 2017.

The four countries listed 13 demands, including scaling down diplomatic ties with Iran and shutting down a Turkish military base in Qatar, to end the crisis.

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".

And there was resentment. "But I believed that it was my responsibility to try to offer answers, not to try to fan it". It was presented in such a really negative way, and I never could get out from under it. "It hurts a lot", she said.

On Thursday, Trump said he would be willing to mediate the dispute between Qatar and the Saudi-led bloc.

The crown prince welcomed Sheikh Tamim's desire to mend fences.

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia declares that any dialogue with Qatar shall be suspended until a clear statement explaining its position is made in public".

Doha recently resumed diplomatic ties with Tehran, following a break in relations that had been coordinated with other Gulf Cooperation Council states.

Qatar hosts a huge USA air base, home to the headquarters of Centcom - the regional command which leads operations against the Islamic State jihadist group.

"We support his efforts to help bring about a settlement", Tillerson said of the Kuwaiti leader.

The Ambassador Ahmed bin Saeed Al Rumaihi expressed appreciation of the Emir, the government, and the people of Qatar for the mediation efforts of the Emir of Kuwait in order to resolve the crisis.
