At some point, it went as far as forging statements and attributing some of them to Washington officials, including to the US President Donald Trump.

A dubious news source, the URL of which is fox-news24.com but is then curiously called United States of America today quoted Minister Carmelo Abela as the foreign affairs minister, without naming him, as saying "the Gulf countries' decision to end ties with Qatar is not in the right direction", and that he explained that there are diplomatic processes in place to solve issues.

It has been reported in several Saudi newspapers that the kingdom and the UAE are now drawing up a list of conditions that Qatar must meet to improve relations.

Iran and Saudi Arabia accuse each other of subverting regional security and support opposite sides in conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Iraq.

"They really began an effort to escape the Saudi shadow and to carve out an autonomous regional and foreign policy that would be distinct", Ulrichsen said.

Qatar has deployed troops with NAVCENT since 2014, according to one official.


"Turkey's openly pro-Qatar policy stems from its deep economic, political and military engagement which has been built up over the years", Ilhan Uzgel, a senior Turkish analyst of global relations, told Xinhua. And the USA government recently attested that Doha had been making progress - however modest - in the fight against terror financing. In November of previous year, the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced the potential sale of 72 Boeing F-15QA Strike Eagles to Qatar and 40 F/A-18Es and F/A-18Fs Super Hornets to Kuwait. Many Erdogan supporters fear that he could be the next target by the US after the Qatari emir. On Friday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu held talks with King Salman as part of Ankara's efforts to resolve the Gulf crisis. It was, he said, "a sign that Turkey tries to take sides".

"To stop further future damage to Turkey's national interests, Ankara must stay put and mute and recalibrate its position to a balanced and non-interventionist mode", he said.

Both agreements were drawn up before the spat between Qatar and its neighbours erupted and were brought to parliament by AKP MPs in an extraordinary session.

Qatar is accused of having links with the terrorist groups and relations with Iran, the two main reasons behind the step taken by certain Arab states to isolate the country and impose sanctions.

Turkey, which is a strong backer of Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, has criticized the measures against Qatar and authorized the deployment of additional troops to Qatar in a show of support.

Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Sabah, the emir of Kuwait, which has not cut ties with Qatar, has also been trying to mediate.
