US, UK Propose Roadmap to Resolve Qatar Crisis, Official Says

"These six principles are best viewed as an effort to set the foundation for meaningful negotiation process".

Last month, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates severed their diplomatic ties with Qatar, asserting that the country funded terrorism, and issued the emirate a list of 13 demands - including shutting down Al Jazeera and cutting ties to Iran - in order to lift the block.

Abdallah Al-Mouallimi, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United Nations, told a group of UN correspondents that their foreign ministers had agreed to the six principles at a meeting in Cairo on July 5, which, he said, should be easy for the Qataris to accept. Qatar is yet to comment on the matter.

Infor is waiting to see how the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) diplomatic crisis will play out before it opens an office in Doha, Qatar.

All of them were forced to leave their jobs or face punishment and legal consequences by their governments, he said. "That's where we can have discussion and compromise".

"At first there were no demands, but following pressure from mediating countries, the blockaders leaked a list of demands that was quickly deemed neither reasonable nor actionable", he added. In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Trump called Qatar a "funder of terrorism" that had been told to stop. The rift between Qatar and the anti-Qatar countries is widening by every passing day. The exercises included a parade of military tanks inside the camp. The document also addressed problems seen as coming from Al Jazeera, which is widely believed to have used its power to incite terror and to have become a media platform for Al-Qaeda, Daesh, Hezbollah and other Iranian militias. This is absurd, given that it is being made by representatives of a country deemed to be one of the biggest - if not the biggest - sponsor of fundamentalist movements.

A reason for the decrease of American clout was the "failed interventions" by Washington in Iraq and Afghanistan after 2001, said Gordon Adams, professor emeritus at American University's School of International Service in Washington.

The US president strengthened that impression during and immediately after Tillerson's trip. In the meantime, the boycott does not stop Qatar from moving ahead with construction of World Cup-related infrastructure, albeit at a higher cost of construction materials.

The Post reported that the US had overheard UAE officials discussing the plan on 23 May.

This statement reinforces the announcement made by the leadership of the Coalition of the Legitimacy in Yemen, which decided to end Qatar's alliance due to its practices that promote terrorism and support its organizations in Yemen as well as its connections and dealings with the Houthi militias in Yemen.

Taman, who is based in Dubai, said the cost of travel to Doha has risen from $400 per flight to $3000 as a result, pushing up company expenses.

"I'd be surprised if you see a full rapprochement here".

The Iraqis then kept the money instead of giving it to the kidnappers, according to one of the officials. However, U.S. national interests notably do not depend on the regional primacy of GCC countries and the promotion of their political projects.
