Kuwait is a staunch American ally trying to mediate a festering diplomatic crisis involving Qatar and its Arab neighbors.

In an Oval Office meeting with congressional Democrats on Thursday, President Donald Trump reportedly complained that Air Force One is smaller than the plane flown by the emir of Kuwait, who visited the White House this week. Trump applauded Kuwait's "critical contributions to regional stability". "But it is something that could happen", Trump said.

"We support his efforts to help bring about a settlement", Tillerson said of the Kuwaiti leader. The U.S.is also concerned that the spat among Arab governments could hamper a shared interest in blunting Iranian assertiveness in the region.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar, the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, of ties to Iran and to terrorist groups.

But Trump has sent conflicting signals about where he stands on the dispute. Qatar's only land border with Saudi Arabia has only been blocked as a result.

Irma: Hurricane sucks water from Bahamas beach in rare phenomenon
The shelters in the Southern Bahamas were activated on Thursday for residents who made a decision to remain on those islands. She also noted the wind was blowing away from the shoreline on Saturday which is why water has not filled the void yet.

For his part, Sheikh Sabah said he remained hopeful that a resolution to the crisis could be reached. In July, however, Kushner said that finding a peace deal might not be possible.

The emir said he believed Qatar was willing to sit down and discuss the demands and that he was optimistic a "solution will come in the very near future". "The hope has not ended yet". The statement, which said the countries "regret" several of the comments by Sheikh Sabah, represents an unusual rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab nations.

The boycotting countries say a military intervention "has not been and will not be considered" to end the crisis.

During that time, Trump invited al-Sabah to visit D.C.

Trump also said the United States' good relations with both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could help bring about a peace agreement - what he called the "world's most complex and hard deal".

The U.S. president said he appreciated Kuwait's role as a mediator "very much", but said he, too, would be "willing to be the mediator".
