Trump says will discuss military issues, Qatar with Kuwait's emir

Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

"A great part of them will be resolved", he said.

President Donald Trump is meeting with the leader of Kuwait, a staunch US ally trying to mediate a diplomatic crisis involving Qatar (KUH'-tur) and its Arab neighbors.

The Saudi-led bloc has also imposed sanctions against the tiny Persian Gulf country, including restrictions on Qatari aircraft using their airspace.

Mr Trump boasted about increased counter-terrorism and intelligence-sharing operations between the two countries, and praised the "tremendous investments" he said Kuwait had made in the US.

The crisis erupted June 5 when Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates all cut ties to Doha over allegations Qatar funds extremists and has ties that are too warm with Iran.

"Every responsible nation must work to strip these [terror] groups of their territory, their financing, and the false allure of their evil ideology", Trump told a joint news conference with visiting Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah on September 7.

Trump also warned that while he would prefer "not going the route of the military", military action against Pyongyang was something that "certainly could happen", agencies reported.

Sheikh Sabah said he had received a letter from Qatar that expressed willingness to discuss a list of 13 demands from its neighbors.

Kuwait has been trying to heal a bitter dispute between Qatar and four Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, which say Doha supports regional foe Iran and Islamists, charges Qatar's leaders deny.

"[A peace accord] is an event that's just never taken place", he said.

We'll come together very quickly. "Any dialogue on meeting their demands should not be preceded by any prior conditions", they said in a statement that was an unusual, personal rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab states.

In response to a reporter's question, Trump briefly spoke about his administration's efforts to restart long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. "I think we'll have something solved".

Kuwait has been serving as mediator, with US backing, but without results thus far.
