Pompeo To Push For End To Gulf Dispute During Qatar Visit
Doha, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 13th Jan, 2019 ) :US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Qatar on Sunday pushing for an end to a diplomatic rift between Washington's Gulf allies on the latest leg of his middle East tour.
"It is time for old rivalries to end for the sake of the greater good of the region," Pompeo said on Thursday in Cairo, where he laid out the Middle East strategy of US President Donald Trump's adminstration.
Qatar -- also a US ally -- denies the allegations and accuses the countries of seeking regime change.
Washington, which at first appeared to back the boycott, has so far been unsuccessful in trying to get the countries to set aside their differences in order to focus on Washington's regional priority -- the fight against Iran.
