Saudi Arabia's foreign minister struck a slightly softer line in comments to reporters during a joint news conference in Washington with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, saying Riyadh was ready to send food and medical supplies to Qatar.

Saudi Arabia's General Commission for Audiovisual Media said it was acting out of "concern for the rights of its citizens and residents" without elaborating further, the news agency reported.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar last week and imposed stringent economic sanctions on it. Doha denies their accusations that it supports Islamist militants and Shi'ite Iran.

In the face of the unfolding GCC-Qatar rift, Morocco opted for neutrality offering mediation in the crisis that has shaken the Gulf after Saudi Arabia and the UAE and their allies in the Arab World and beyond severed ties with Qatar, which they accuse of supporting terrorism and side-lining with Iran.

On April 28, 2016, an agreement was signed to start work on the deployment of the Turkish troops in Qatar, which was approved by the Turkish parliament on June 7, 2017.

Soon after FBI Director James Comey was sacked, Smith tweeted: "Increasingly hard to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions". Qatar is home to Al-Udeid, the largest USA airbase in the region, which houses around 10,000 troops.

On Friday, President Trump accused the country of funding terrorism "at a very high level". But he supported moves by Kuwait to act as a mediator in the dispute "with the help of friendly countries such as the United States", he added. He said al-Jazeera, the Qatari-backed television network that has drawn particular consternation from Qatar's neighbors, would likely be on the list of issues Qatar address would have to address. Qatar Airways has made Doha a global hub in just a few years, but industry analysts say banning it from Gulf states' airspace could threaten its position as a major transcontinental carrier.

Earlier on Monday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian met with his Qatari counterpart, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, who said that his country supported Kuwait's mediation efforts and was ready to engage in talks in accordance with worldwide law.
