Trump hails Kuwait mediation on Qatar; Arab states react

Trump hails Kuwait mediation on Qatar; Arab states react

They say it is the world's most complex and hard deal, you know that.

US President Donald Trump said he was willing to "help mediate" in the ongoing Gulf dispute and claimed he would have a deal worked out "quickly" to end the Saudi-led blockade on Qatar, a crisis he has previously taken credit for starting after claiming Qatar was a sponsor of terrorism.

The GCC is an alliance of six Middle Eastern countries: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman.

HH the Emir welcomed the proposal of his brother HRH the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia during the call to assign two envoys to resolve controversial issues in a way that does not affect the sovereignty of States.

He urged the parties to the dispute - Qatar on one side and Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the other - to embrace the emir's initiative.

President Donald J. Trump will welcome Amir Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah of Kuwait to the White House for an official working visit on September 7, 2017.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said before the visit that it was aimed at getting Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in the region to stand in "unity" with Israel and confront Iran.

Special counsel Robert Mueller and the House and Senate intelligence committees are also investigating the meeting, which was attended by Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

"I am optimistic that the solution will come in the very near future". Although Qatar has rejected some of them out of hand, Sheikh Sabah said he believed negotiations were possible. "Dialogue on the implementation of the demands should not be preceded by any conditions", they said in the joint statement, while voicing "regret" about the Kuwaiti ruler's statement "on the success of mediation in stopping military intervention". "I think it's something that's going to get solved fairly easily", Trump said.

In Kuwait, media reports on Thursday focused on the emir's visit to Washington as a sign of the strong relationship the two countries have, including when a USA -led coalition expelled occupying Iraqi forces from the small nation during the 1991 Gulf War.
