The Saudi-Emirati-led bloc of countries has reportedly given Qatar 10 days to comply with 13 demands to end the crisis, insisting, among others, that Doha shut down Al Jazeera, close a Turkish military base and scale down ties with Iran.
While the Qatari Foreign Ministry has yet to issue an official reply, the director of the government's communications office, Sheikh Saif Al-Thani, called the Gulf States' demands "unrealistic" and said they were aimed at limiting Qatar's sovereignty.
Heritage Foundation Director of Foreign Policy, Luke Coffey says, "I think numerous countries in the region were looking for strong United States leadership and I think President Trump, the message he sent [while visiting Saudi Arabia] delivered that".
"While some of the elements will be very hard for Qatar to meet, there are significant areas which provide a basis for ongoing dialogue leading to resolution". Its ally Turkey joined in, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan saying on Sunday that the ultimatum was "against worldwide law".
On Sunday, Tillerson said that while some elements of the series of requests made by the four countries would be "very hard for Qatar to meet", "there are significant areas which provide a basis for ongoing dialogue leading to resolution". Since early June, Qatar's Persian Gulf neighbors have blockaded the tiny country, accusing it of cozying up to Iran and coddling extremists.
Tillerson also urged all sides to "lower" their rhetoric to ease tensions, and said that the U.S. would stay in "close contact" with all parties and support Kuwait in its mediation efforts.
