Qatar Petroleum CEO says gas won't be cut to UAE

Several other states in the region scaled back diplomatic relations with the country.

Such an outcome is made more likely by the fact that Qatar is not comfortable with the way the Saudis cast it as being in the camp of Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah.

A handout picture provided by the Saudi Royal Palace on May 20, 2017, shows US President Donald Trump (2nd-R) and Saudi Arabia's King Salman (L) dancing with swords at a welcome ceremony ahead of a banquet at the Murabba Palace in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They have accused Qatar of backing terror groups, charges denied by Qatar, which says the allegations are politically motivated. Military sources in the region told Reuters no new Turkish military unit had been sent to Qatar and a unit already present there was taking part in the drills.

However, the recent Gulf crisis spurred Turkey's government to approve sending troops to Qatar forthwith.

Washington has so far snubbed Erdogan's requests to extradite the USA -based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, leader of the Gulen Movement that was blamed for the 2016 failed coup against Erdogan, while criticizing Turkey's post-coup crackdown for violating human rights and rule of law. "Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!"

The foreign minister of the United Arab Emirates, which is part of the coalition, affirmed a need for a strong Western role in resolving the dispute, telling the Guardian newspaper in the U.K. that any agreement would have to be overseen by "Western allies". "It's early days. Turkey is trying to balance between its ideological zeal and its national interests".

Some analysts fear that Turkey's stance on the Qatari crisis could backfire and damage its own interests by angering a number of Sunni-dominated Arab countries. Saudi Arabia also said it would not bar Qataris wanting to perform the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. Of course, halting the exports would also be an economic hardship on state-run QP, which wouldn't have pipeline access to some alternative market if they suddenly lost the UAE as a customer.
