Qatar vows 'no surrender' in row with Arab states

He said Qatar needed to shut down or limit its Al-Jazeera news network, as well as stop funding extremist groups and others. Qatar's foreign minister told CNN that hackers put a false story on Qatari state media, claiming the country's leader made remarks friendly to Iran and skeptical of Trump.

Turkey, also a key United States ally, criticized the decision by nine countries to sever diplomatic ties, according to the semiofficial Anadolu Agency.

He also said Qatar's ruling emir will not leave the country while it is "in blockade", so he can't attend an offered mediation by U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House.

"We need the world to condemn the aggressors".

"So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off".

While most of the Gulf Cooperation Council members have cut ties, Kuwait's Emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber Al-Sabah, is seeking a diplomatic solution.

Afterwards, Saudi Arabia and the UAE blocked access to Qatari media, including Al Jazeera, and Egypt accused the worldwide news channel of "inciting terrorism" and "fabricating news".

Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani spoke to Tillerson and was due in Moscow on Saturday.

Qatar faced a similar crisis in 2014 that saw Arab countries pull their ambassadors from the country.

Trump won't say if Comey conversations were taped
Comey used the "L word" again while explaining why he made a decision to take notes during his meetings with the president. Some of the king's followers interpreted that as a royal edict, and Becket soon met an untimely end.

The Gulf countries have ordered their citizens out of Qatar and gave Qataris overseas 14 days to return home.

Sheikh Hamad took over as Qatar's emir in 1995 and expanded his nation's presence on the worldwide scene through negotiating hostage releases, briefly flirting with diplomatic ties to Israel, hosting a Taliban office and creating Al-Jazeera.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and others cut diplomatic ties with Qatar on Monday, partly over the tiny Gulf monarchy's alleged support for Islamist groups such as the Brotherhood.

"The investigation team confirmed that the hack was carried out using innovative technological methods by exploiting an electronic gap on the website of the Qatar News Agency", the report said. "I think the Americans would choose to side with Saudi Arabia over any other country in the region". Doha, which is accused of sponsoring the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS (Islamic State) and al-Qaeda, has become a pariah state in the region, with only Iran - and possibly Turkey - willing to come to Qatar's rescue.

Earlier this week, Trump appeared to tie the blockade to the success of his trip in May to Saudi Arabia and welcomed it as positive news in a series of tweets.

Both Qatar and the USA sought to show the rift wasn't affecting military cooperation.

Tillerson is also calling on Qatar to address the concerns of other Arab nations. "They said they would take a hard line on funding extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar", said Trump.

If Qatar doesn't change its approach, then it "needs to understand that it's on its own, and it has to sort of deal and run its economy and run its country on its own", Gargash said. This dispute is threatening the stability of the entire region.
