USA steps up Qatar crisis diplomacy, lauds Kuwait's mediation

Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

President Donald Trump with Kuwait's emir, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, at the White House on Thursday.

When the dispute erupted three months ago, Trump initially appeared to side with Saudi Arabia but later instructed his team to support Kuwait's mediation efforts.

The US President briefed H H Emir on the results of his communication with HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the discussions held in this regard with the Emir of Kuwait H H Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, within the framework of the generous mediation led by His Highness. That crisis could have implications for the USA military presence in the region.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar, the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, of ties to Iran and to terrorist groups.

Trump, too, on Thursday offered support.

Trump "underscored the importance of all countries following through on commitments from the Riyadh Summit to maintain unity while defeating terrorism, cutting off funding for terrorist groups and combatting extremist ideology", the White House said in a statement. He did not identify those countries, but in June he had made reference to Saudi and other Arab complaints about Qatar. "The hope has not ended yet". "Any dialogue on meeting their demands should not be preceded by any prior conditions", they said in a statement that was an unusual, personal rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab states.

Tesla is Taking Its Superchargers to a New Frontier: Cities
Now that the Model 3 is in production, the company is about to see a whole lot more vehicles on the roads. Tesla's highway Superchargers deliver up to 120 kilowatts; they can charge up a auto in 30 to 40 minutes.

The four countries commended US President Donald Trump's stance and firm assertion that the only way to resolve the crisis is to put an end to supporting and financing terrorism, as well as his unwillingness to resolve the crisis unless such a way is achieved. However, Qatari exiles whom analysts believe are backed by the boycotting countries have repeatedly called for a coup.

Trump also touched on peace talks between Israel and Palestine, saying there is a "chance" for a Middle East peace settlement, long one of the most elusive goals of U.S. diplomacy. Trump plans to meet both Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly later this month.

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