US State Department questions Gulf motives on Qatar boycott

US State Department questions Gulf motives on Qatar boycott US State Department questions Gulf motives on Qatar boycott

The US State Department has turned sceptical on the embargo against Qatar by fellow Gulf states and Egypt, triggered by Saudi Arabia on June 5.

It reported that additional Turkish troops had arrived in Qatar on Sunday for the exercises, although military sources in the region told Reuters the operation actually involved Turkish troops who were already present rather than new arrivals. That was shortly after Saudi Arabia and its partners cut ties with Qatar and blocked air, sea and land traffic to the peninsular nation.

Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said Doha was ready to "engage and address" the concerns of other Gulf Arab states in what he described as a proper dialogue with pre-determined principles, but reiterated that sanctions must be lifted first. Qatar denies being the source of terror funding, and has said that the United States has not supplied evidence of its charges.

"We are not interested to look at the books because I know how it has been left behind by one of the airlines that was too keen to relaunch it and failed", he said. "But those countries have people on the board", Al Baker said. They were later joined by Libya, Yemen, the Maldives, Mauritius and Mauritania, with Jordan and Djibouti announcing they would lower the level of diplomatic contacts with Qatar.

Tropical Storm Bret forms; Cindy may be brewing
Tropical storm Bret is bringing heavy rain and 40 miles per hour winds to the lower Windward islands at this time. This new policy allows residents and businesses to have more time to prepare for storms that form near the coast.

"Law firms, consultancies, professional service companies were told not to access Qatar for no other reason than government decisions".

"Two weeks into the Gulf crisis the state department is effectively changing sides, criticising those blockading Qatar", he said.

"The more that time goes by the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. There are five companies at the QFC from Saudi and Bahrain". Only hours earlier, Tillerson went in front of cameras at the State Department to say the blockade was "hindering U.S. military actions in the region and the campaign against ISIS".

The UAE said this week the sanctions could last for years unless Doha accepted demands that the Arab powers plan to reveal in coming days. The United States may intervene as well considering that Qatar hosts the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East though Trump's series of tweets seems to go against the instincts of the American foreign policy.

Pyongyang has also vowed to develop a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the USA mainland. DPRK is short for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, North Korea's official title.

Despite that engagement, however, she also said that the US believes the issue can be resolved peacefully without having to step in to mediate - even after the State Department said Friday that Tillerson canceled his attendance at the Organization of American States summit in Mexico this week in order to mediate.

Mauritania followed suit shortly afterward, while Jordan downgraded its diplomatic relations with Doha and closed the local office of Qatar's Al Jazeera satellite news channel.

The Pentagon has said the boycott was hindering US ability to plan for long-term operations in the region.
