Saudi Arabia and its allies on Tuesday released a new list of 18 organisations and individuals with ties to Yemen, Qatar and Libya branding them as "terrorist" over suspected links to Islamist extremism in Syria. Before heading for Kuwait on Sunday, he told reporters that the Gulf crisis benefits no one both in political and economic terms. He added that both sides know that their interests in Qatar can not conflict.

Turkey has delivered a large amount of aid of food and daily necessities to Qatar, whose citizens are under pressure from the sanctions by neighboring Arab countries. "Qatar is solid in its economy and we are comfortable and we can continue like this forever", CNN quoted Ambassador Meshal bin Hamad Al-Thani, as saying.

"We will see that there have been advancements in some critical issues", he said.

Turkey's president on Monday urged Qatar and Arab countries isolating it to negotiate an end to the crisis dividing them as he wrapped up a two-day Gulf tour.

Speaking at theJustice and Development Party (AK Party) group meeting at Parliament, Erdoğan said: "The visits were highly productive and successful".

Fox said he will release a report on July 25 that details the USA -U.K. trade relationship in every US congressional district. Donald Trump said that he would back a "very, very big" trade deal between the two countries.

Against the backdrop of its increasingly tense relations with the US and Europe, Turkey is relying more on its economic ties with rich Gulf nations, such as Qatar. "We will come out of this much stronger than before", he said.

Qatar called the demands "unreasonable" and said it infringed on its "sovereignty". Just when you thought the Gulf crisis couldn't get any more absurd, a media outlet linked to the Abu Dhabi ruling family has announced the release of a documentary claiming that Qatar was behind the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The Minister of State for Defence Affairs expressed his regret that Qataris were prevented from carrying out Umrah and faced obstacles in performing Haj, drawing parallels to preventing people of Al Quds from praying in Al-Aqsa mosque.

He noted that democracy in Qatar has many facets.

"I would like to thank the four countries for their blockade, because it has made Qatar stronger, the people of Qatar stronger, their businesses stronger".
