Turkish president meets Qatari leader over Gulf dispute

Qatar denies the accusation and insists the blockade is a violation of worldwide law.

However, HE al-Attiyah said: "Lifting the siege should precede any dialogue".

According to the Ministry's official spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid, Shokary, during his visit to Belgium to participate in a political dialogue session with European Union officials, said that Egypt will not compromise on its "sons' blood" regarding the crisis with Qatar.

Again on Tuesday, the four states - Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain - blacklisted nine organisations and nine individuals "directly or indirectly linked to Qatari authorities" as "terrorist", according to a joint statement carried by Egypt's official MENA news agency. Those four nations, three of which belong to the Persian Gulf Cooperation Forum, decreed at the beginning of June a political and commercial boicot against Qatar with the pretext that it supported terrorists.

The Saudi-led bloc, which now blacklists 89 persons and organizations accused of ties to Islamist groups they say are backed by Qatar, also dismissed an amendment last week to Doha's counter-terrorism law as "insufficient".

The suspect is described as 186m tall with brown short hair - contrary to a previous police statement that he was bald. On Monday afternoon, police found a white Volkswagen minivan that the suspect was believed to be driving.

"The four countries also affirm the continuation of their current measures, and possible future measures that might be taken, until the Qatari authorities are committed to fulfilling all the just demands, which ensure countering terrorism and maintaining security and stability in the region", the statement said.

Turkey's president - now in the Gulf on a series of official visits - has reiterated his support for Kuwaiti mediation of the ongoing Qatar crisis, an aide to Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.

"Destruction is easy but reconstructing what's destroyed is hard", Erdogan told reporters.

The quartet cut diplomatic ties and transport links with Qatar in early June, accusing it of supporting extremists.

Turkey has built increasingly close ties with Qatar in recent years, including opening its first military base in the Persian Gulf there last year. The emir of Qatar on Friday said he was prepared to engage in negotiations as long as his country's sovereignty was not violated.
