Qatar rejects terrorists blacklist issues by UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt

Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al Thani

Other U.S. officials have said Qatar has already taken some steps to reduce terror funding but that the steps are insufficient.

Egypt and Bahrain increases pressure on Qatar over allegations that it interferes in the affairs of its neighbors by supporting and financing Islamist groups, Reuters added. "This means that, despite some temporary problems, China has nothing to worry [about the present row]", Bian Yongzu said.

On Friday, President Donald Trump spoke by phone with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi "to discuss Qatar and the need for Gulf unity", according to Reuters, quoting a senior administration official.

"The investigation team confirmed that the hack was carried out using innovative technological methods by exploiting an electronic gap on the website of the Qatar News Agency", the report said.

The rift has provoked confusion and anxiety in Qatar, an energy, banking and construction hub, which is home to 2.7 million people - majority foreigners.

Moreover, China planned to set up free trade zones with members of the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (AGCC) of Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia and while earlier agreed fuel supplies will hardly be affected by the current row, the creation of free-trade zones, which are an important part of the One Belt, One Road project, will probably have to be put on hold.

Shi'ite Muslim Iran blamed Sunni arch-rival Saudi Arabia for the attack, which was claimed by the Sunni Islamic State militant group.

Turkey's president also called on Saudi Arabia to remove all sanctions on Qatar and open diplomatic talks.

The United Arab Emirates' Justice Ministry is warning social media users that they can face prison time and fines for offering sympathy for Qatar amid a growing diplomatic crisis in the Middle East.

The news [VIDEO] broke out on Monday that the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Bahrain had cut their relationships with Qatar due to an allegation that the country has been supporting extremism and terrorism in the region.

Jubeir declined to confirm a list of 10 demands published by Al Jazeera, which included shutting down the Doha-based news channel, but added that Qatar knew what it needed to do to restore normal relations. Riyadh denied any involvement. Tillerson has been tapped by Trump to help mediate the worst diplomatic crisis in the Gulf in years.

Turkey has brought forward a troop deployment to Qatar and pledged to provide food and water supplies to its Arab ally, which hosts a Turkish military base.

Slogans against and in support of Qatar have dominated Twitter in Arabic.

"Qatar must be completely transparent and answer precisely the questions that have been asked notably by its neighbors. We hope that cooler heads will prevail, that wiser heads will prevail and we will not get to that".

Apart from the United States, France and Russian Federation have also called for dialogue among Gulf allies while Turkey stands in defense of Qatar and said that they will still maintain strong ties with Doha.

Qatari's foreign minister said on Tuesday "Doha was ready for mediation efforts".
