President Trump enjoins Kuwait, Arab nations to fight their shared enemies

Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

The visit by Kuwait's Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad to Washington is "historic both in the timing and the level of the accompanying delegation" and comes at a "very delicate time due to the challenges and crises in the Arab region", the Kuwaiti ambassador to the USA has said.

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

President Donald Trump on Thursday expressed a willingness to be a mediator between Qatar and other Arab countries accusing it of supporting terrorism.

In a statement issued early Friday, Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates say "any dialogue on meeting their demands should not be preceded by any prior conditions".




Mr Trump griped to a group of NY and New Jersey politicians after his press conference with the Kuwaiti Emir, sources present told Politico. But he said: "We're going to give it our best". "The United States and Kuwait both recognize the important of GCC unity to meet the challenges of the region that we all face together, not the least of which is the threats from Iran".

Trump initially appeared to side with Saudi Arabia, but then he instructed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to support the Kuwaiti mediation effort.

"If I can help mediate between Qatar and, in particular, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, I would be willing to do so, and I think you would have a deal worked out very quickly", Trump told reporters at a joint press conference on Thursday at the White House in Washington, DC, with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah. But the dispute has dragged on. The statement, which said the countries "regret" several of the comments by Sheikh Sabah, represents an unusual rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab nations.

The crisis erupted June 5 when Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates cut ties to Qatar over allegations it funds extremists and is too cozy with Iran.
