'Cooperation Between American and Kuwait Has Never Been Stronger'

U.S. President Donald Trump says nations in the Middle East must confront parties "such as the Iranian regime" as part of efforts to defeat "murderous" terror groups and radical militias in the region.

Shaikh Sabah - who is accompanied by a high-calibre official and business delegation - and President Trump will meet at the White House on Thursday. "I was telling the emir before that if I can help between UAE and Saudi Arabia ... if I can help mediate between Qatar and, in particular, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, I would be willing to do so". Kuwait has been trying to mediate the dispute.

"The press has been incredible", Trump reportedly told House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during a phone call on Thursday morning. Still, the dispute has dragged on for more than three months, even after Tillerson shuttled between the parties in July and dispatched two other USA envoys to bolster the 88-year-old Kuwaiti emir's initiative.

Kuwait has emerged as a key mediator after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt announced on 5 June they had cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar.

"We support his efforts to help bring about a settlement", Tillerson said of the Kuwaiti leader. He initially appeared to side with Saudi Arabia.

Coming to a peace agreement in the Middle East is the most hard deal in the world to make, President Donald Trump said Thursday. Although Qatar has rejected some of them out of hand, Sheikh Sabah said negotiations were possible. "Dialogue on the implementation of the demands should not be preceded by any conditions", they said in the joint statement, while voicing "regret" about the Kuwaiti ruler's statement "on the success of mediation in stopping military intervention".

During his press conference with the Emir, Mr Trump claimed the relationship between the USA and Kuwait "has never been stronger - never, ever".
