Qatar Petroleum says production not impacted by Gulf crisis

Stop Funding terrorism Donald Trump Tells Qatar US Key Ally

"We believe these are unintended consequences, especially during this Holy Month of Ramadan, but they can be addressed immediately", he said.

Mr Trump said he wanted Qatar "back among the unity of nations".

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and other nations in the region moved to cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar this week.

Barcelona have been sponsored by Qatar Airways for the past four seasons, but they have agreed a new four-year deal with Japanese online retailer Rakuten from the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Trump's comments came as Washington joins intensifying worldwide efforts to heal the worsening rift between the key Western Gulf allies, which has escalated into the region's worst diplomatic crisis in years.

"Fighting terrorism and extremism is no longer a choice, rather ... a commitment requiring decisive and swift action to cut off all funding sources for terrorism regardless of its financier", the official Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a government source.

The United Arab Emirates praised Trump's "leadership in challenging Qatar's troubling support for extremism" in a separate statement released on Friday.

On Saturday, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE made no mention of Mr Tillerson's call.

The neighbors also resent Qatar's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood movement and its sponsorship of the pan-Arab satellite television network Al-Jazeera, which has given opposition figures a platform.

Saudi Arabia and its allies are demanding an immediate change of policy by Qatar was essential.

Al-Thani, during a visit to Russian Federation to discuss the crisis, said: "The US sees Hamas as a terror organization, but to the rest of the Arab nations it is a legitimate resistance movement".

The tiny, oil and gas-rich Qatar strongly denies supporting Islamist extremists.

"Qatar is accused of having a hidden relationship with Iran, but its relations with Iran are clear, transparent and time-tested", said Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, noting that the UAE does more trade with Iran than Qatar does.

Qatar ally Turkey meanwhile hosted the Bahraini foreign minister for talks on the crisis. "But it does not give us joy when relations between our partners deteriorate", Mr Lavrov said.

"Qatar is confident that the review and analysis will confirm that Qatar has significant measures in place to prevent and detect efforts to launder funds and/or to use its financial systems to finance terrorist organizations", he said.
