But Qatar wields a potential economic weapon if the crisis escalates and countries around the world that depend on its supply may find themselves needing to side with the tiny nation that is home to a major USA military installation.

Saudi, UAE and Bahraini citizens were also given the same timeframe to leave Qatar.

Qatar Ports Management Company said direct services to Sohar and Salalah would operate three times a week.
