The first casualty of the Gulf fracas will be the free trade agreement, which China was negotiating with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GGC), which includes Qatar.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization - a six-member group led jointly by China and Russian Federation - will consider whether to induct Iran during a summit in Kazakhstan that begins Thursday.

Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies may have felt emboldened to move against Qatar by Trump's visit last month to Riyadh, which saw the president clearly align United States interests with the kingdom and lash out at Iran.

The severing of diplomatic ties and partial blockade against Qatar by the UAE and Saudi Arabia are not aimed at forcing a change in leadership, the UAE said on Wednesday.

CNN reported late Tuesday evening that Russian hackers planted a fake news story on Qatar's state news outlet that contributed to the developing diplomatic crisis, citing USA officials who said the hacking was apparently aimed at causing "rifts among the US and its allies".

Qatar is home to the largest USA airbase in the Mideast.

Gause also noted Qatar's relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood "and other oppositional political groups", as well as Qatari cooperation with Iran on some issues "at a time when Saudi Arabia is confronting Iran directly on all sorts of fronts".

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel accused the United States president of fanning conflict in the Middle East and risking a "new spiral in arms sales" with his remarks.

Trump added his broadside against Iran, which the USA has designated as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1984.

Yet the nuclear deal remains in place despite Trump's pledge during the presidential campaign to discard or renegotiate the pact.

The fallout from the decision was felt in China, which traditionally has stayed neutral in Middle East politics.

YEREVAN-Armenia's president, prime minister, foreign minister and National Assembly speaker each addressed condolence and condemnation messages in wake of Wednesday's terrorist attacks in Iran, which hit the parliament building, as well as the mausoleum of the late Iranian leader Ayataollah Rouhollah Khomeini, a holy site in the city of Qoum. Xi first made the commitment during his January 2016 visit to Tehran.

Iranian police said they had arrested five suspects over the attacks and the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, struck a defiant tone.

Kuwait is leading efforts to find a mediated solution.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said Monday the country hoped that "relevant countries can properly resolve differences through dialogue and consultation, uphold unity and jointly promote regional peace and stability".

China may keep coming under pressure to take sides as its interests expand in the Middle East. "For these two actions to happen. after this meeting means that the U.S. and Saudi regimes had ordered their stooges to do this", said Mohammad Hossein Nejat, deputy head of the Revolutionary Guards intelligence branch, according to the Fars news agency.

"Qatar has been exposed to an instigation campaign based on allegations that amounted to absolute fabrications, which proves that there are premeditated intentions to cause damage to the state", Qatar's Foreign Ministry said.It further accused the nations involved of seeking to impose "guardianship" over Qatar.

"Such a "Trumpification" of relations in a region already susceptible to crises is particularly unsafe", Gabriel said. During his Saudi trip, Trump announced $110 billion in deals to sell weapons to the kingdom.
