Turkey: Gulf states are violating Qatar's sovereignty

Le Drian made his remarks in a press conference with Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Efe news reported.

Earlier in the week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in the Gulf, meeting separately with officials in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, which is trying to mediate the dispute.

"But we tabled some documents with both sides while we were here which lays out some ways that we might move this forward", he added.

Cavusoglu emphasised that Turkey supports Kuwaiti mediation efforts to resolve the crisis. Saudi Arabia also sealed Qatar's only land border, impacting a key source of food imports in the mostly desert nation. Doha denies the charges.

He is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia later on Saturday and will visit Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates on Sunday. The Brotherhood was a major player in the Arab spring revolts across the Middle East and North Africa.

Arsenal boss Wenger attempts to convince star to stay via text
Alexis Sanchez has admitted for the first time that he wants to leave Arsenal in this summer's transfer window as he wants to play in the Champions League. "Of course (he will stay)", Wenger said.

"As to the Muslim Brotherhood, we've had sticking points with these parties ourselves, the USA, in terms of how we view the Muslim Brotherhood's activities", Tillerson said.

Qatar hosts al-Udeid Air Base, the largest US military installation in the Middle East and hub for USA -led operations against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. "And there's a difference of view among these parties over the Muslim Brotherhood, and again in many ways it's not much different than the differences we have".

He described a recent Qatari deal with the United States as "prudent" and said: "It shows that they are open to dialogue".

On June 22, the four Arab nations urged Qatar to abide by a 13-point list of demands if it wanted the crippling blockade lifted, but the defiant Doha government has strongly refused to comply, calling the demands "unrealistic, unreasonable and unacceptable".
