The Cleveland Browns are building for the future - and it's a good thing, too, because the present looks very grim indeed. But after the way the team played today, Browns fans have to be much more optimistic than they have been in the past.

Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera's senior political analyst, described what was said by the two leaders at the press conference as a "positive" development in the diplomatic crisis.

"We support his efforts to help bring about a settlement", Tillerson said of the Kuwaiti leader.

But Trump has sent conflicting signals about where he stands on the dispute.

President Trump who staged a joint conference with the Kuwait leader shortly after his arrival in the White House also enjoined the leader and the Arab nations to all face alongside the USA their shared enemies. As the dispute has dragged on, the administration has dispatched other US envoys to bolster the 88-year-old Kuwaiti emir's initiative.

But underscoring the impasse, the quartet of Arab nations boycotting Doha issued a strongly worded statement early Friday morning dismissing some of the emir's comments.
