Asian football officials are monitoring the diplomatic crisis between Qatar and other Arab states, hoping to minimise the impact on worldwide competitions being played in the Gulf region. Other US officials have said Qatar has already taken some steps to reduce terror funding but that the steps are insufficient. They have imposed what Qatar says is a blockade of shipping and air traffic and closed Qatar's only land border, causing panic buying at supermarkets and provoking confusion and anxiety across the population.

The escalation came two weeks after the website of Qatar's official news agency was allegedly hacked by unknown individuals who reportedly published statements attributed to the country's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

There are five cruise ships scheduled to visit Qatar's Doha Port between now and the end of the year, and another 40 due next year, if the dispute continues until then. Increasing the pressure Friday, Qatar's neighbors put 12 organizations and 59 people on a terror sanctions list and described them as being associated with Qatar.

"I have never seen Qatar supporting terrorism, the accusations are not true". He has now ratified legislation, which was fast-tracked by parliament, to deploy Turkish troops to Qatar.

American President Donald Trump on Friday called on Qatar to stop funding terrorism as his state department urged Arab states to ease their blockade on the country and calm tensions.

Trump added that "all reference was pointing to Qatar". So we had a decision to make.


He has also repeated allegations made by Riyadh and Abu Dhabi about Doha's alleged funding terrorism through a series of tweets. In the call with the Qatari leader, Mr. Trump said the US wants a "united Gulf Cooperation Council to promote regional stability, but never at the expense of eliminating funding for radical extremism or defeating terrorism".

His comments were a forceful endorsement of this week's move by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates to cut off ties to Qatar.

Erdogan has said isolating Qatar would not resolve any problems. "Qatar remains critical for coalition air operations in the fight against ISIS and around the region".

"There are humanitarian consequences to this blockade", Tillerson urged.

The United Arab Emirates welcomed "President Trump's leadership in challenging Qatar's troubling support for extremism".

"We know you are stronger together", Tillerson said of the nations.
