En­voys of the US Sec­re­tary of State, in­clud­ing re­tired Gen­eral An­thony Zinni paid an of­fi­cial visit to the Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad Al Thani at Al Bahr Palace in March. Sheikh Tamim also met up with the Deputy As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary of State for Ara­bian Gulf Af­fairs, Tim Len­derk­ing, and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion.

Apart from re­gional and in­ter­na­tional af­fairs, strate­gic re­la­tions be­tween Qatar and the US were dis­cussed dur­ing the meeting.

Zinni also vis­ited Kuwait and met its Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ah­mad Al Jaber Al Sabah and other Kuwaiti lead­ers. The talks fo­cused on “the Gulf crisis and ef­forts to con­tain it, in ad­di­tion to the ar­range­ments for the up­com­ing US-GCC Sum­mit in May”.

Ac­cord­ing to ear­lier re­ports, Trump wants to bring Gulf lead­ers to Camp David for a show of sol­i­dar­ity with the US. But he wants a break­through in the Gulf crisis be­fore the po­ten­tial sum­mit of the six-coun­try Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil.
