The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic relations with Qatar on Monday and gave its citizens 14 days to leave, accusing Doha of supporting extremism.

"Senegal has decided, from this day, Wednesday, 7 June 2017, to recall for consultations its ambassador in Qatar", the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The visit is part of the Emir's effort to mediate one of the worst Arab rifts in years after the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, among others, cut diplomatic ties with Qatar.

A similar decision has been taken by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.

Global understanding of the small Gulf nation's alleged links to those organizations, as well as al Qaeda and Islamic State, is improving, Gargash said.

"The President underscored that a united Gulf Cooperation Council is critical to defeating terrorism and promoting regional stability", the document said.

Qatar's credit quality would decline if tensions with its Gulf neighbours continue for much longer, raising the country's debt ratio and hurting banks' liquidity, Moody's ratings agency said on Thursday. The airline's website said it has offered refunds or rebookings to affected passengers.

Commenting on the criticism against Turkey for providing food supplies and military support to Qatar, Erdogan said: "Our friends in the Gulf were not bothered by the U.S. base in Qatar but why are they concerned about a Turkish base". At the centre of these efforts is a US think tank, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which has drawn attention to itself mainly with pro-Israel and anti-Iranian statements and with a host of articles criticising Qatar and accusing it of supporting terrorism.

"It looks like Saudi Arabia and the UAE won't be satisfied until Qatar is pushed to stop funding the groups they don't like, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas".

Qatar Airways reports that its three charter flights to bring passengers from Saudi Arabia to Doha were concluded successfully yesterday.

Sudan, which has close political and economic ties to Qatar, has expressed concern over "the regretful development between brotherly Arab states".

The real reason, or at least the main reason, that the Saudis ostracized Qatar is Doha's relatively strong relations with Iran.

The U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia are also Qatar's two biggest food suppliers, according to the World Bank.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the federal minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources, said Qatar and Pakistan last year signed a $1 billion agreement, under which Qatar's Liquefied Gas Company Limited will sell LNG from 2016 to year 2031 to state-run Pakistan State Oil.

Qatar hosts the Al-Udeid military base, the largest USA airbase in the Middle East.

It did not say who might have carried out the hack.

Its emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah held talks on Wednesday with Qatari counterpart Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, following talks with senior UAE officials and Saudi King Salman.
