Al Jazeera says Twitter feed working again after suspension

Erdogan told Portuguese television this week that he had approached the Gulf state's King Salman "with the same idea for Saudi" after work began on the base in Qatar in 2014.

Qatar rejects the accusations.

Qatar denies fomenting instability in the Middle East and funding terrorism.

Qatar has gone ahead with plans to buy 36 F-15 jets from the US despite rhetoric from US President Donald Trump backing the country's Gulf rivals in its current diplomatic dispute.

By contrast, there are still no diplomatic relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia; all that can be said at this stage is that behind-the-scenes diplomatic and intelligence co-operation has taken place between the two countries.

Objections to Qatar's well-known support for Hamas are based on the fact that this undermines the Palestinian Authority and Egypt, not on pro-Israeli sympathies.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned increasing diplomatic tension between Qatar and its Arab neighbors is leading to operational problems in the region.

"This is about behavioural change", Gargash said.

Also, the Qatar exchange said subscriptions to 3.3 million Doha Bank shares, which had been unsubscribed in the bank's capital increase, had been completed.

Egypt has long thought Qatar's support of Islamist groups Muslim Brotherhood was unsafe for their country. Qatar denies the coalitioin's allegations that it supports terrorist groups and Iran, and has accused Saudi Arabia of seeking to dominate smaller states within the energy-rich region.

Saudi Arabia's coastguard has killed an Iranian fisherman in the waters south of Iran, a senior border official of the Islamic Republic says, PressTV reported. Iran and Turkey are now providing Qatar's required food supplies.

He prayed for efforts "to preserve our Gulf states, their peoples and to avoid all that disrupts their strong relations and threatens their security and safety".

Turkey and Qatar both provided support for the elected Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt that was toppled in 2013 by military leader Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, now Egypt's president.

The exercises convey U.S. support for Qatar amid the Gulf dispute.
