"Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are all essential USA partners in this effort".

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

Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani held a telephone conversation yesterday evening with President Donald Trump of the friendly United States of America. The US launched air strikes in April at a Syrian airbase after President Bashar al-Assad's government allegedly unleashed sarin gas on Khan Shaykhun in eastern Syria, killing 80.

"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 noted that he spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia by phone on Wednesday.

Qatar has strongly denied the allegations and denounced demands made by the blockading countries as attempts to infringe Qatar's sovereignty.
