Qatar emir calls for 'unconditional dialogue' with blockading countries at United Nations meeting

His Highness the Emir's meeting with the United States president is expected to give a momentum to the efforts to resolve the Gulf crisis that has now entered the fourth month.

"We are right now in a situation where we're trying to solve a problem in the Middle East and I think we'll get it solved", Trump said, describing Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani as a long-time friend. Qatar is home to the largest USA military base in the Middle East.

The U.S. president said he was confident a diplomatic dispute between Qatar and its Arab neighbors could be "solved pretty quickly".

For more than 100 days Qatar has been subject to a Saudi-led boycott that shuttered Qatar's only land border, denied air space to its national airline and suspended maritime links.

Speaking from the podium of the 193-member United Nations General Assembly, Sheikh Tamim renewed the call "for an unconditional dialogue based on mutual respect for sovereignty".

Shortly after the dispute erupted in June, Trump expressed support for isolating Qatar to fight terrorism.

"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".

Sheikh Tamim highlighted Qatar's resistance in the face of the Saudi-led bloc's excessive demands and said Doha has "refused to yield to dictations by pressure and siege".

"We have a problem with our neighbors and your interference will help a lot".
