London and Tel Aviv - Qatar is reportedly seeking to arrange meetings between Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and leading members of US Jewish organizations as part of an effort to improve its standing with the US and ending its isolation, according to US Jewish sources in Tel Aviv.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, accompanied by his wife Emine Erdogan, is welcomed by Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al Thani in Doha, Qatar, July 24, 2017.

Ankara has been a major supporter of Doha in the crisis that left Qatari diplomatically and economically isolated.

Few countries, including Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian government which came to power after toppling the country's first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation. "Cutting diplomatic ties suddenly, closing worldwide airspace and sea routes - all of which are the steps when one wants to attack a country - were signs of plans for a military intervention", he said.

Ankara has a military base in Qatar and deployed more troops after the hostilities erupted.

The meeting focused on the resolution of the Gulf crisis, as well as bilateral relations, regional problems and global developments, presidential sources said.

"Engagement with Qatar can only be in the best interests of the United States and the Jewish community, as we cannot allow Qatar to be ostracized by its neighbors and pushed into Iran's sphere of influence", Muzin was quoted as saying in the report. The closure of the base was one of the conditions laid by the Saudi-led bloc for the lifting of the sanctions, which was rejected by Doha.

The two leaders reaffirmed commitment to resolve the crisis through diplomatic means, and to cooperate on regional problems, sources added.

"We welcome the convening of the panel discussion and reiterate our condemnation of the imposition of coercive measures because they are contrary to global laws and violations of human rights", Al-Zaabi said. "So I expect no solution to the crisis in the short term, but the diplomatic process will start soon", Tuz said.

The two leaders also discussed the most prominent regional and global events and exchanged views on them, the official Qatar News Agency (QNA) said.
