Turkey's Erdogan to discuss Qatar dispute with Trump, minister says

Turkey's Erdogan to discuss Qatar dispute with Trump, minister says

Three ships loaded with 350 tonnes of fruit and vegetables were also set to leave an Iranian port for Qatar.

Dubai, part of the UAE, is also massively important for the import and export of goods because of its huge port Jebel Ali.

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain last week cut diplomatic ties with Qatar over alleged accusations that Doha was supporting worldwide Islamist extremists who are threats to the region's peace and security.

Doha has said the severing of trade and transport ties are hurting the country's inhabitants. Global shipper Maersk already has said it will begin using Salalah for its shipments to Qatar.

The diplomatic rift came two weeks after Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt blocked several Qatari media outlets, including Al Jazeera, over comments allegedly made by Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Qatar's finance minister said on Monday the world's richest country per capita has the resources to endure and played down the economic toll of the confrontation.

"We're business as usual and we're open for business", he said.

A Gulf minister attempted to bribe the Somali president with $80 million to join the boycott of Qatar, amid an ongoing diplomatic dispute that has led to an all-out blockade, sources told The New Arab.

"Our reserves and investment funds are more than 250 percent of gross domestic product", said Al Emadi, who sits on the board of the sovereign wealth fund.

But authorities in the UAE and Bahrain have made praise for Qatar's government a criminal offence carrying possible jail time, and some Gulf citizens have anxious that the strong rhetoric on Qatar's foreign policy would divide their peoples.

Ratings companies have been less sanguine about the feud's effect on Qatar's economy.

"The statement from Federation Internationale de Football Association was seen as welcome", said the insider.

Qassemi said that current tension in relations between the Persian Gulf Arab states is a effect of the "wrong Riyadh summit".

These policies helped the region's largest airlines - Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways to develop their home airports as hubs linking passengers travelling between the east and west.

"I don't think it is something we are worrying about too much". "If we're going to lose a dollar, they will lose a dollar also".

Kuwait has tried to mediate in the crisis between Qatar and other Arab nations over Doha's alleged support of Islamists and its ties to Iran.
