Trump's stunning response to the Middle East diplomatic crisis

Galeno Paniagua | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:37

Riyadh- The General Customs Department in Saudi Arabia implemented the government's decision to cut relations with Qatar and ordered the closure of land, sea and air transportation and the prohibition of transit in Saudi territory. "United States and the Coalition are grateful to the Qataris for their longstanding support of our presence and their enduring commitment to regional security".

Qatar's ambassador to the USA said Tuesday that he and other leaders were "surprised" by President Trump's tweets taking credit for four Arab nations cutting ties with his country.

"With regard to measures undertaken by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I've read in the media but have not been informed of anything official and I can't express an official position", Jubeir told reporters.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump backed the Gulf states' decision and seemed to criticize Qatar on Twitter.

US officials have already alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election while Russia is suspected of meddling with other USA allies during their elections.

Polls open in United Kingdom snap election
Around 46.9 million people are registered to vote with over 40,000 polling stations open across the country. The Conservatives say a government led by Labour would lead to overspending and political instability.

Maersk, the world's biggest container shipping line, said it was unable to transport goods in or out of Qatar because it could not take them through the UAE port of Jebel Ali.

In an interview with CNN, Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said Trump has mentioned news reports claiming Qatar has funded terror groups, which he said were false.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia along with Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar over its alleged support for extremists. "Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!", Trump tweeted.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said isolating Qatar would "not resolve any problems" and called for "mutual dialogue". "The world has gone insane", Dzhabarov said.

"And we hope that our brother Qatar will now take the right steps in order to end this crisis".

Comey to Congress: President Trump told me 'I need loyalty'
But the RNC is also prepping Trump-backers to argue there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice. The ex-FBI director's testimony recounts his conversations with the apparent precision of a veteran lawman.

The highest number of Qatari flights are bound to North Africa and Southern Europe via an air route over Saudi Arabia and Egypt, the official was quoted as saying by the Mehr News Agency, adding that from now on, the Qatari flights will have to cross over Iran, Iraq and Jordan for travelling to North Africa. Qatar just finished one of the stadiums for the tournament, though others have yet to be built.

The world's largest exporter of liquid natural gas, Qatar normally offloads its cargo in the UAE to be transferred on larger ships.

There are about 10,000 USA forces in Qatar.

Qatari citizens have been told they have 14 days to leave Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE, and those countries also banned their own citizens from entering Qatar.
