UAE urges Turkey to pursue balanced policy in Qatar crisis

A day after announcing that Tillerson would lead the USA delegation to the OAS General Assembly in Cancun, the State Department said Friday that Tillerson's deputy, John Sullivan, will go in his place.

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and a number of other countries severed diplomatic and economic relations with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism" and Iran.

"The nation of Qatar, unfortunately, has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level", Trump said in a speech at the White House.

"Qatar is willing to sit and negotiate about whatever is related to Gulf security", he said during a briefing in Paris after diplomatic meetings Monday. "This is not just a Qatari policy but the whole GCC agreed on it, so no one can claim we have a deeper relationship with Iran".

F-35 fighter show is gesture to US allies
Rumors had swirled earlier this year that the Paris Air Show didn't invite the F-35 for a flight demonstration. That would be the biggest deal yet for the stealthy warplane, set to make its Paris Airshow debut this week.

The statement further added that the two top diplomats of Saudi Arabia and Egypt demanded from the ex-president to declare his support in the isolation of Qatar.

He highlighted that Saudi Arabia's hosting of the historic Arab Islamic American Summit brought together the United States and a number of Muslim and Arab countries with the aim of better dialogue between Arab and Islamic countries and their counterparts in the West.

Turkey has a military base in Qatar that now houses about 90 Turkish soldiers.

Caret emphasised that unlike direct commercial sales, foreign military sales negotiations required years of negotiation, as was the case with the sale to Qatar.

Louis Blues: Five Potential Vegas Victims Through Expansion Draft
The same argument applies to Martin, who still has two years with an average-annual salary of $4.85 million left on his contract. McPhee will be fielding many offers in the next few days as teams try to keep available players from being drafted.

In their apparent bid to secure U.S. support and that of Israel, Riyadh, Manama, Cairo and Abu Dhabi suspended all land, air and sea traffic with Qatar, expelled its diplomats and ordered Qatari citizens to leave their countries.

Qatar says the sanctions have also brought personal hardship for its citizens who live in neighboring countries or have relatives there.

Qatar, the world's richest country per capita, has used its wealth over the past decade to exert outsized influence in the Middle East, backing factions in civil wars and revolts across the region.

The deployment made possible by legislation fast-tracked by Turkey following a diplomatic rift between Doha and four other Arab states.

FLDS leader Lyle Jeffs arrested
While Jeffs was a fugitive, nine of the 10 other people charged in the high-profile February 2016 bust accepted plea deals. Jeffs had been living out of a Ford pickup truck and was in the area for, at least, two weeks, according to investigators.

The visits by the Iraq prime minister also comes as Saudi Arabia has been leading a blockade of Qatar, a move unprecedented in the Arab world since Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Several ordered Qataris in their countries to return home, and their citizens to leave the country within two weeks.
