On these grounds, actions taken against Qatar under the initiative of Saudi Arabia and the United States are devoid of any legitimate reason and tend to generate a major crisis in the Middle East.

The incident came at a time of diplomatic crisis between Qatar and neighbouring Gulf countries. "This is a clear indication that Qatar is being supported by Malta despite enough evidence of them supporting terrorism".

Qatar held military exercises with Turkish troops on Monday, demonstrating one of its few strong alliances after two weeks of ostracism and economic isolation imposed by neighbours which accuse the USA ally of supporting terrorism.

Meeting with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani on Wednesday, Cavusoglu reportedly praised the "wise and calm manner" with which Doha has approached the current crisis.

"We have no news concerning one of the boats", he said.

"Most of our Arabic accounts were blocked, but they are now up-and-running", the spokesman told AFP, adding that it may take several hours for them to be fully restored. Otaiba expects the list of demands will be presented this week.

"It's been a pillar of its foreign policy that it keeps channels of communications open with everybody, which among other things allows Qatar to position itself as a mediator in a lot of regional disputes", Juneau says.

Qatari officials have refused to back down, defending al-Jazeera, redirecting flights and receiving food and other support from Turkey and Iran.

On June 5, Saudi Arabia and allied states cut all ties with Qatar, pulling their ambassadors from the emirate and ordering its citizens to repatriate by June 19.

Such firms sold 7.3 billion euros ($8.2 billion) worth of goods to customers in Britain a year ago , their fourth-biggest market. He declared: "There should be no doubt - we are leaving the European Union and delivering on that historic referendum result".

There are a number of converging interests between Turkey and Qatar, he says.

She said Gulf countries have the "strengths and wisdom to find a political way out of this crisis". So even if Saudi Arabia is not directly involved in funding terror organisations any longer, its role in creating the infrastructure, ideological framework and societal justifications is undeniable.

An Iranian fisherman was shot and killed Saturday by the Saudi coastguard which accused him of entering Saudi waters, Iran's interior ministry said, fuelling tensions between the regional rivals.

Most tankers loading in Qatar are still taking on cargoes in Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E.

In the last two weeks, Qatar's government attempted reassuring citizens and residents by falsely claiming that disputes are soon to be resolved.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan: Dated UK tower blocks could be torn down
The tragedy has provoked a very big response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims. It is feared many are trapped inside the blazing building as the fire broke out in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Last week, Qatar's navy carried out three days of joint training exercises with the US Navy. Paradoxically, if Qatar is involved in fomenting terrorism then why are there 10,000 United States forces in that country and why were the charges against Qatar not presented during the Riyadh summit?
