German minister accuses Trump of stirring Gulf conflict

Irune Rengel | 08 Junio, 2017, 16:46

Trump and the Emir of Qatar also spoke on the phone in February in which the two leaders "reaffirmed the close defense cooperation between our two countries and committed to strengthen efforts to defeat violent terrorists", according to a readout from the White House.

One of the factors at play here may also be Qatar's close relations with Iran; it certainly contributes to the timing of the coordinated withdrawal from diplomacy across nations. The official wasn't authorized to comment publicly Tuesday and requested anonymity. FlightRadar24, a popular airplane tracking website, said Qatar Airways flights already had started to be affected.

Salwa crossing is the only land road connecting Qatar with the world.

In an earlier interview with Doha-based satellite news network Al-Jazeera, Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said Kuwait's ruler had asked Qatar's emir to hold off on giving a speech about the crisis late Monday night.

No other U.S. president has made the kingdom their first foreign visit.

"During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology", he tweeted.

The comptroller's office has said it scrambles each month to pay off an overall backlog of bills of more than $14 billion. Debt payments, pension contributions and distributions to local governments are required under state law.

Like the UAE and Saudi Arabia, Qatar is a member of the GCC and of the oil-cartel OPEC.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the Republican chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, says he wasn't aware of Trump remarks about Qatar and appeared surprised when reporters described what the president had tweeted.

Qatari share prices closed down 7.58 per cent yesterday after five Arab countries - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen - announced they were cutting diplomatic ties with the gas-rich emirate over its alleged support for extremism. They said they would take a hard line on funding extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar.

Some observers read the statement as a weakening or even breaking of a key U.S. partnership over social media.

Where to start? Mr. Trump's intervention aligned the United States against a country that is now hosting at least 10,000 US military personnel at a base where operations against the Islamic State are being directed - a facility that was needed after Saudi Arabia ordered USA forces to leave its territory.

It noted a considerable increase in nonresident deposits in Qatari banks, and an increase in their lending to the government to fund infrastructure projects.

Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau rekindle bromance over dinner
Some studies suggest the United States will cut emissions as much as 19 percent by 2025 if it simply moves forward as is, he said. Obama and Trudeau smiled from ear to ear and waved at the crowd.

Qatar is a key US ally in the fight against the Islamic State group and the USA military base in the country is one of the largest in the Middle East.

The president's sharp critique of Qatar pulled the USA directly into a conflict that American diplomats had wanted the bickering parties to resolve among themselves.

"We need to look into the maturity of those deposits but if they're short-term deposits, this could expose the banks rapidly to reduced confidence from GCC institutions", he said. It could also complicate the Kuwaiti and Omani efforts within the bloc to begin talks on resolving the crisis. So have other regional carriers.

UAE-based newspaper Gulf News and pan-Arab channel Al-Arabiya reported the crackdown on expressions of sympathy with Qatar. Sheikh Hamad briefly establishes low-level ties to Israel that are later dropped, surprising the rest of the Arab world. "What you are seeing now is that the Saudi-led coalition feels empowered".

In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Qatar expressed its "deep regret and surprise" at the decision of its Gulf neighbors. "Simply put, this is the framework for a solution", he said.
