Saudi and Bahrain welcome Trump's scolding of Qatar

The purpose of the Turkish troop deployment in Qatar

Meanwhile, Russia's foreign minister called for dialogue to resolve the crisis.

Cavusoglu also said Turkey's military base in Qatar, where there are now around 90 Turkish soldiers based, was aimed at contributing to the security of the entire Gulf region and was not aimed at a specific Gulf state. "However, we can not be pleased with the situation, where these relations between our counterparts are aggravating".

He denied that Qatar supported Egypt's outlawed Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip.

However, Trump unfazed by the accusation, gloated about his recent visit to the Middle east, which according to him paved the way for this move as he said in a series of tweets, "So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off".

"We are of the view that all parties should resolve their differences through a process of constructive dialogue and peaceful negotiations based on well-established worldwide principles of mutual respect, sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries", it said.

On Friday the two countries imposed sanctions on 59 individuals and a dozen organisations based in Qatar for financial ties to Islamist militias from Libya to Yemen, as well as Al Qaeda. The list included members of the ruling family.

On Friday, the USA president and secretary of state took contrasting approaches to Washington's mediation efforts.

London Bridge attack: Three French victims among dead
Spanish banker Ignacio Echeverria (39), was killed after trying to defend a woman with his skateboard in the Borough Market area. Police identified the three attackers as Khuram Butt, 27, Rachid Redouane, 30, and 22-year-old Moroccan-Italian Youssef Zaghba.

"Of course, among the issues (we shall discuss) would be the aggravation of the situation in the Arab world", Lavrov said.

In a press conference Friday afternoon at the White House, Trump called out Qatar for being "a funder of terrorism, and at a very high level". "We consider the stability and security of the Gulf in the same way we consider our own stability and security", Cavusoglu said.

"Qatar has been riding (the) tiger of extremism & terrorism".

After Mr Trump's remarks, the Pentagon reiterated its position that Qatar was a key USA military partner, saying "the evolving situation is hindering our ability to plan for longer-term military operations".

Saudi Arabia and its allies Saturday welcomed an accusation by President Donald Trump that Qatar was bankrolling extremism but ignored a separate USA call for them to ease their economic blockade.

A separate SPA report on Saturday acknowledged Tillerson's call for Qatar to curtail support for terrorism, but did not mention his remarks that the crisis was hurting ordinary Qataris, impairing business dealings and harming the USA fight against the Islamic State militant group.
