Qatar boycotters dismiss remarks by Kuwaiti emir

Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke separately on Friday with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the White House said in a statement.

President Donald J. Trump will welcome Amir Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah of Kuwait to the White House for an official working visit on September 7, 2017.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said before the visit that it was aimed at getting Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in the region to stand in "unity" with Israel and confront Iran. It recently restored full diplomatic ties to Iran, with which it shares a massive offshore natural gas field that makes its citizens among the world's wealthiest. At one point he said the dispute "began because of that fact that there has been massive funding of terrorism by certain countries". He previously has described how Arab leaders criticized Qatar for such terror financing during a regional summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

For his part, Sheikh Sabah said he remained hopeful that a resolution to the crisis could be reached. Although Qatar has rejected some of them out of hand, Sheikh Sabah said he believed negotiations were possible. We'll come together very quickly.

Trump also said he would be "very upset" if Syria's government uses chemical weapons.

He said both sides wanted peace and that the USA had "tremendous talent" working on the problem.

Trump also said the United States' good relations with both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could help bring about a peace agreement - what he called the "world's most complex and hard deal".

"For Trump to say "I support the Kuwaiti emir in his diplomacy and if it doesn't work I am ready to step in and bring them all to the White House", this is a different language than the language that we heard before". I think the Palestinians would like to see it happen.
