Kuwait Emir confirms Qatar ready to meet, discuss 13 demands

During the phone call, they discussed the latest developments related to the Gulf crisis in light of Kuwait's efforts to resolve it through diplomatic channels and through dialogue between all parties to ensure the security and stability of the region.

"I would be willing to be the mediator", Trump said.

The GCC is an alliance of six Middle Eastern countries: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman. As the dispute has dragged on, the administration has dispatched other USA envoys to bolster the 88-year-old Kuwaiti emir's initiative.

Donald Trump appeared to enjoy his recent visit with Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, calling him a "good partner" and a "very special person".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, after meetings with senior Kuwaiti officials, said the US and Kuwait would take new steps to resolve a 3-month-old dispute that pits a Saudi-led coalition, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, against Qatar over its alleged support for terrorist groups and Iran.

The Saudis, along with Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and other countries in the region, have broken all commercial and diplomatic ties with Qatar over its alleged financing of terrorism and close ties to regional rival Iran.

"We support his efforts to help bring about a settlement", Tillerson said of the Kuwaiti leader.

Kuwait has been trying to mediate the dispute between Qatar and its US-allied Arab neighbors.

In a joint news conference in the White House East Room, Trump reaffirmed the USA commitment to al Sabah.

President Donald Trump's oldest son is scheduled to make his first appearance on Capitol Hill Thursday as part of a Senate investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and a meeting he had with Russians during his father's campaign past year. He noted that Qatar had been presented with a list of 13 demands by the other countries and was willing to discuss them.

During his press conference with the Emir, Mr Trump claimed the relationship between the United States and Kuwait "has never been stronger - never, ever".
