Trump tells Qatar to stop funding terrorism

Trump tells Qatar to stop funding terrorism

He said Qatar, as an independent nation, also had the right to support groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, despite the fact that its neighbours view it as a threat to their hereditary rule.

In a preliminary report published late on Wednesday, the investigators did not say who they held responsible for the hack but said that both Britain and the United States were helping with their inquiry.

"Such a Trumpification of relations with one another is particularly risky in a region that is already rife with crises", he told the newspaper, in an apparent reference to what critics say is the increasingly divisive rhetoric seen since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump previous year.

The State Department had said the USA learned only at the last minute about the Arab nations' plan to cut ties.

In a wide-ranging interview Thursday with the AP, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani repeatedly denied that his country funded extremists and he rejected the idea of shutting down its Al-Jazeera satellite news network, something suggested as a demand of the Arab nations.

"We call on the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt to ease the blockade against Qatar", he said in Washington.

"Qatar has a history of supporting groups that span the spectrum of political expression, from activism to violence", Mr Tillerson said.

Despite Mr Tillerson's plea for "no further escalation", Mr Trump's sharp comments are likely to further embolden Saudi Arabia and others in their bid to isolate Qatar.

Mr Tillerson also said the blockade by Qatar's neighbours was "hindering U.S. military action in the region and the campaign against Isis".

Bahrain and Egypt severed relations with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and their arch-adversary Iran-charges Qatar calls baseless.

Nowhere else will you find such humour and a unique personality, someone who puts friends and family above all others. As of Tuesday, friends and relatives were becoming increasingly desperate to learn the fate of others still missing.

"We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt to ease the blockade on Qatar", Tillerson said, going on to note that the blockade was "hindering USA military actions in the region and the campaign against ISIS".

"This is the strongest accusation to date of Qatar being connected with terrorism".

Numerous others added to the list are figures associated with the Muslim Brotherhood who have made Qatar a base, including Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi.

"We ask Qatar and other nations in the region to do more and do it faster". On Wednesday, the White House announced that U.S. President Donald Trump called Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani offering to serve as a mediator to help the parties resolve the crisis between Doha and Arab countries by inviting them to the White House for a meeting, if necessary.

The foreign minister of Bahrain, which is closely aligned with Riyadh, is certain to discuss the crisis and Turkey's role in it when he visits the country on Saturday.

He said the agency that housed the report was able to identify six people - including victor - who had made copies of the report. Warner said he was trying to get US intelligence agencies to declassify which states were hit by Russian hacking efforts.

Turkey will send warplanes and warships to Qatar after an initial deployment of troops, the mass-circulation Hurriyet newspaper said on its website.
