Tillerson cancels trip to Mexico to work on Qatar crisis

Tillerson cancels trip to Mexico to work on Qatar crisis

However, the much smaller Qatar is a regional ally of the United States too.

Qatar denied the accusations, calling the moves to diplomatically isolate it "unjustified". It hosts the US military air base Al-Udeid which is of key importance to the American military presence in the Gulf region itself and further afar.

From the onset of the crisis, both Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis counseled conciliation, not confrontation. The quarrel involves legitimate complaints about Qatar's support and sympathy for extreme Islamist movements, and longstanding resentment of Qatar's role as a regional gadfly. The U.S. previously turned against Pakistan following revelations that Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden had been hiding in a compound in Abbottabad. "Our militaries are like brothers". "Reuters news agency has quoted a Qatari official as saying" Americas support for Qatar is deep rooted and not easily influenced by political changes".

The joint exercise was requested by the US Navy "a few weeks back", according to Staff Commander Mohammed Desmal Al- Kuwari. It said alternative sources for construction materials had been secured. Boeing, the prime contractor on the sale, declined to comment. With all the interventions, there is a great possibility that the other Gulf countries will see reason and ease the sanctions on Qatar. He rejected allegations that Saudi Arabia was suspending aid worth $50 million (44 million euros) until the Horn of Africa nation severs ties with Qatar.

It said the three leaders had updated each other on contacts they had had as part of efforts to resolve the row between Qatar and fellow Arab Gulf states.

"Presumably the USA could have delayed the deal if they'd wanted to, although I don't think there's a great connect between sales and foreign policy". While the dispute hasn't escalated to a military confrontation, Qatar's military is dwarfed by neighboring Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, two of its biggest opponents in the crisis.

Pentagon and State Department officials have since scrambled to reassure the emirate, which hosts the largest USA airbase in the Middle East and the command headquarters for operations in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.

In November, the USA approved the potential sale of up to 72 F-15QA planes to Qatar for $21.1 billion, with the American defense firm Boeing serving as the primary contractor. Qatar purchases advanced military equipment from the United States, which supports jobs in the USA defense industry.

Erdogan said he had made the same offer to Saudi Arabia's King Salman Abdelaziz.

On a broader level, Trump is said to believe the US shouldn't try to solve problems for Middle Eastern countries and should instead let "the natural order play itself out", as one official put it.

Qatar is a long-standing, albeit problematic, USA ally.

Mevlut Cavusoglu announced the visit after speaking with the foreign ministers of Kuwait, Qatar and Tunisia.

Despite the trying moments Qatar faces even with restricted airspaces from its neighbouring countries, Turkey and Iran opened their airspace to more Qatar flights.

The Government of the Gambia has refused to side with the UAE, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia in their diplomatic offensive against Qatar. 11,000 USA military personnel operate from Qatar.

"For now, we are working to bring these states together towards a solution which satisfies both their current regional concerns and the global needs and expectations of passengers and shippers", the statement said.

"The mixed messages the administration is sending on many national security issues is baffling", Sen.
