  • Gulf diplomatic crisis: Morocco to send food to Qatar

In its earlier response to the Middle East crisis, Pakistan had stressed the need for unity in the Muslim world and urged the countries involved to engage in dialogue.

This is part of an ongoing allegation that Qatar's charitable contributions are going to terrorist movements.

Morocco said it would send plane-loads of food to Qatar to boost supplies there after Gulf Arab states cut diplomatic and economic ties with Doha.

Saudi has also accused Qatar of supporting the Houthi rebels in Yemen, despite the fact that Doha is a member of a Saudi-led coalition bombing the group.

But he supported moves by Kuwait to act as a mediator in the dispute "with the help of friendly countries such as the United States", he added.

Meanwhile, Kuwait has been leading efforts to reconcile between the disputing parties since the row escalated with an air, land and sea blockade of Qatar.

"Whatever relates to our foreign one has the right to discuss", Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani told reporters during a visit to Paris.

Tillerson, who's been ignored by the White House before, even as the Secretary of State tries to develop greater credibility on the global stage, had invested considerable energy in trying to persuade Saudi Arabia and its allies to relax their blockade.

NBC, Megyn Kelly face backlash over Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist interview
Even New York City mayor Bill de Blasio called on NBC to pull the interview in a tweet Monday evening. The anchor is expected to begin hosting a 9 a.m. news show under NBC's Today banner in September.

In a tweet on Monday, the carrier said it "welcomes the Saudi employees working on Qatar Airways Airbus A320, and invites anyone with the desire to join flynas and work among its crew".

"Since Pakistan enjoys good relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Qatar, we will try our best to resolve the differences between the Arab countries", Nawaz Sharif had told journalists during a recent visit to Kazakhstan.

"I am also concerned by some of the strong actions which Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain have taken against an important partner, and urge them to ease the blockade on Qatar".

The US has, however, called on Gulf states to "de-escalate" the crisis.

"Qatar can not own stakes in the Empire State Building and the London Shard and use the profits to write checks to affiliates of Al-Qaeda", Yousef Al Otaiba wrote in an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal on Monday (June 12).

Qatar's financial markets stabilized on Monday after a week of losses as the government showed it could keep the economy running in the face of sanctions by its neighbors which caused the biggest diplomatic rift for years among the rich countries of the Gulf.

Qatar's port authority published video Monday showing a ship arriving at Doha's Hamad Port from Oman's port of Sohar.

Typically, cargo for Qatar stops at Dubai's massive deep-water Jebel Ali port or in the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi, then gets put on smaller boats heading to Doha. That helped spark the crisis, which began June 5 when Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and started trying to isolate Qatar from the rest of the world.
