Donald Trump Jokes About Shared Media 'Problems' with Amir of Kuwait

"Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!"

Doha rejected all the demands.

At a joint news conference with Trump on Thursday, Sheikh Sabah said he remained hopeful a resolution could be reached.

"We know that not all of these 13 demands are acceptable", the emir said, referring specifically to issues that affected Qatari sovereignty. "A great part of them will be resolved". "So we're going to focus on it and try to come to the right conclusion in the near future".

He said both sides wanted peace and that the U.S. had "tremendous talent" working on the problem.

This is the Kuwaiti Amir's first visit to the United States during Trump's presidency and comes after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates cut relations with Qatar in June 2017, accusing the country of supporting extremism.

"Clearly, he didn't make single negative statement in this press conference, unlike previous conferences, which means he is either restraining himself under pressure from the Kuwaitis, or he has actually been convinced otherwise that they all need to sit down and figure it out because, at the end of the day, this is a political problem that requires a political solution".

Following that, a telephone conversation was held between HH the Emir and his brother, HRH Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, based on coordination of the US President, where they stressed the need to resolve this crisis by sitting down to the dialogue to ensure the unity and stability of the GCC countries.
