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

Trump said he would be willing to act as a mediator in the bitter diplomatic dispute between Qatar and at least four Arab nations led by Saudi Arabia, a role so far taken up by Kuwait.

President Donald Trump will host Kuwait Ruler Amir al-Sabah at the White House on Thursday afternoon. "I think we have a chance of doing it".

Later Friday, the White House said Trump had spoken separately with the leaders of Saudi Arabia and the UAE. He did not identify those countries, but in June he had made reference to Saudi and other Arab complaints about Qatar.

Sheikh Sabah claimed that the Qatari government was ready to discuss a list of 13 demands from its Arab neighbors. "We will be most successful with a united GCC", he said. In July, however, Kushner said that finding a peace deal might not be possible.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar, the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, of ties to Iran and to terrorist groups.

With the latest closure orders from Washginton, "both countries will remain with three consulates each", she said. Russian diplomats were working to vacate the properties over the weekend, including the six-story consulate.

The emir said he believed Qatar was willing to sit down and discuss the demands and that he was optimistic a "solution will come in the very near future".

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 previous year.

"The US president was quite restraint - he didn't use any inflammatory language and didn't escalate his declarations against any particular country", Bishara said.

Trump also said the United States' good relations with both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could help bring about a peace agreement - what he called the "world's most complex and hard deal". "I think we'll have something solved".

In Kuwait, media reports on Thursday focused on the emir's visit to Washington as a sign of the strong relationship the two countries have, including when a USA -led coalition expelled occupying Iraqi forces from the small nation during the 1991 Gulf War.
