Qatar emir takes nation's case on embargo

Prime Minister HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa formally unveiling the new branding of Qata

Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has called for an worldwide convention to settle its diplomatic crisis with Saudi-led Arab quartet through peaceful means, state-run Qatar News Agency reported Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump and Sheikh Tamim later held a meeting during which the emir requested his intervention, while Trump expected a solution to the crisis soon.

"I have a very strong feeling that it will be solved pretty quickly". Qatar hosts Al Udeid air base, the largest US military facility in the Middle East.

The four countries boycotting Doha - Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt - have made it clear on several occasions that there can be a dialogue with Qatar only if it meets the 13 demands.

The US President said he expects that the dispute in the Gulf region would be resolved quickly.

Trump reportedly convinced Saudi and Emirati leaders, saying that a military conflict with Qatar would trigger a crisis in the Middle East that would benefit Iran.

Trump had initially sided with the Saudi-led group and called Qatar a "funder of terrorism".

Earlier on Tuesday, Sheikh Tamim criticised the countries behind the blockade on Qatar in his address to the UN General Assembly.

"A Gulf official from one of the opposing countries said it was "unfortunate that Emir Tamim continues to talk about a blockade when even he in the same speech acknowledged that his ship lanes are open".

Qatar's emir, in turn, said he believed Trump's "interference will help a lot".
