U.S. ambassador to Qatar to step down amid diplomatic crisis

Bein Sports is a spin-off of Al Jazeera, a Qatar state-funded television network that was pulled into a dispute in which Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain last week cut diplomatic ties and transport links with Doha.

Erdogan added he would hold three-way phone talks on the crisis later yesterday with French President Emmanuel Macron and Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Hamad Al-Thani.

He noted during the press conference that allegations over Qatar's support to the Muslim Brotherhood were "false".

Otaiba reiterated the accusations that Qatar was supporting terrorism.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Erdogan would discuss the Gulf rift in a telephone call with U.S. President Donald Trump in coming days. Many US ambassadors leave their posts after serving around three years.

Shell Smith was appointed ambassador to Qatar by ex-President Barack Obama in 2014.

Her decision came amid the tumult between Qatar and five Arab states led by Saudi Arabia.

In May, she appeared to express dissatisfaction with political events back home in another message posted on social media.

Qatar is home to Al-Udeid, the largest United States airbase in the region, which houses around 10,000 troops.

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Egypt announced Monday they were cutting off all diplomatic relations with Qatar, citing national security concerns.

Jubeir said Qatar can move goods in and out "whenever they want", adding that Saudi Arabia has allowed families to move between countries.

In line with this mediation, Morocco's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, arrived in Abu Dhabi on Monday June 12, where he was was received by Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces at Al Bateen Palace.

"Diplomatic dialogue is the solution but it requires a foundation that is not yet available".

Morocco has also waded into the crisis, announcing it was sending plane-loads of food supplies to Doha as part of its religious duty during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.
