Mediating Qatar row
DOHA: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited Qatar yesterday to help break the deadlock in a dispute between the tiny, energy-rich nation and four Arab states, putting pressure on the American allies to patch up their differences.
He will visit Saudi Arabia today, which shares Qatar’s only land border.
Saudia Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt broke off relations with Qatar last month and have accused it of supporting extremist groups. – AP
