No comments :

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) to support Qatar 's counter - terrorism efforts was signed Tuesday between the United States and the Gulf states.

The agreement was signed when US Secretary of State Rex Tillarsen visited the Department of Energy.

The Gulf Coast tour is an endeavor to end the division between four Arab countries, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

Carter explained the future efforts he could take to strengthen the war on terrorism and actively deal with terrorist financing issues.

Tilerson also visited Kuwait on Monday and discussed with Saikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah, who is a mediator between Qatar and the four nations.

Donald Trump, the governor of Afghanistan to the Middle East, said last month that the Qatar government is having difficulty criticizing fundraising.

Trump's blunt remarks were inspired by the Arabs' decision to cut off his relationship with Qatar in a protest against what he said at the Riyadh summit in May.

"I expect that Saudi Arabia and 50 nations will already visit, they will be tough on extremist financing, and all refer to Qatar, perhaps this is the beginning of terrorism's end to terror!" Trump told Twitter.

Arab countries, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt have broken off diplomacy and travel with Qatar on June 5, disputing Arab countries, accusing them of sponsoring expeditions to Iran and terrorist clothing.

Qatar denied the claim.

The four countries submitted 13 requirements, including closing the Al Jazeera television station in Doha and limiting links with Iran to 10 days.

But he said he was ready to discuss a "legitimate question" with Arab countries to end the crisis, but some requests could not be met because "the underlying charges were not true."

"We can not eliminate the connection between the Islamic nation, Al Qaeda, and Lebanon's Shiite militant group Hezbollah," he said.

"There is no one in Qatar, so we can not expel Iran's revolutionary guards," he said.

"The response to the four provinces was generally negative and lacking anything, and we found that Egypt did not provide a basis for withdrawing Qatar policies." Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said after the deadline had expired.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir's press conference said that Qatar will continue its political and economic boycott by the time it changes its policies.

The United States said some of its demands for Qatar by neighboring countries in the Middle East "would be very difficult to meet."

In his statement, Tillarsson said the list of requests from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates included key areas of "providing a basis for dialogue and providing solutions".

He also urged Qatar and other Arab countries to "sit together" and work through the list.

Tillerson also called for "a deterioration of rhetoric that would help alleviate tension."

Kuwait, which is linked to Qatar, is trying to mediate disputes with US support.
