Trump claims he can mediate 'quick deal' to end Gulf crisis

"A great part of them will be resolved", he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke separately on Friday with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the White House said in a statement. He previously has described how Arab leaders criticized Qatar for such terror financing during a regional summit in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.

HH the Emir welcomed the proposal of his brother HRH the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia during the call to assign two envoys to resolve controversial issues in a way that does not affect the sovereignty of States.

Saudi Arabia and its Arab satellite states of Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates cut their diplomatic ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing Doha of sponsoring terrorism and destabilizing the region.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, after meetings with senior Kuwaiti officials, said the US and Kuwait would take new steps to resolve a 3-month-old dispute that pits a Saudi-led coalition, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, against Qatar over its alleged support for terrorist groups and Iran.

Trump says he will discuss the diplomatic crisis involving Qatar and its Arab neighbors.

"And there may be no solution, but it's one of the problem sets that the president asked us to focus on", Kushner said.

"[A peace accord] is an event that's just never taken place", he said. "Dialogue on the implementation of the demands should not be preceded by any conditions", they said in the joint statement, while voicing "regret" about the Kuwaiti ruler's statement "on the success of mediation in stopping military intervention". The statement, which said the countries "regret" several of the comments by Sheikh Sabah, represents an unusual rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab nations.

Trump said Irma is much more powerful than Hurricane Harvey, but noted that while Harvey's damage was mostly due to flooding, Irma's winds promise risky conditions in the Sunshine State.

"I think we have a chance of doing it", he said. I think the Palestinians would like to see it happen.

Kuwait has been serving as mediator, with USA backing, but without results thus far.
