Qatar said to be seeking meetings with US Jewish leaders

Both leaders emphasises the importance of solving the crisis in the Gulf diplomatically and vowed to further bolster relations between Ankara and Doha, said Turkish presidential sources, cited by the state-run Anadolu news agency.

The latest reports indicate that Turkey's exports to Qatar hiked to $165 million in the past three months, with a remarkable surge of 84 percent year on year.

The conference was organized by Khalid al-Hail.

The statement was released in response to a speech made by Qatar's representative, where he called it as the "blockade by boycotting countries", at a clustered interactive dialogue held by the Human Rights Council as part of its 36th regular session in Geneva on Thursday.

"I don't want to be a prop to help Qatar's image when at this point they have done nothing to reform and change", Klein told The Algemeiner on Tuesday, shortly before making his decision public. "They fund Hamas, they broadcast Nazi-like propaganda on Al Jazeera, they have close relations with Iran".

"US President Donald Trump was planning to kick off diplomatic negotiations between the Gulf states and Israel, but it was going to be impossible because of Qatar's presence", he said.

"The Emir is confident that he can buy a whole new image among American Jews even as he traffics in global antisemitism through Al Jazeera and grants sanctuary to mass murderers", the ad said. In a statement on September 7 announcing the initiative, Muzin said he believed that the Qataris were "sincere" in their desire to improve relations with "the U.S. and the Jewish community worldwide". Muzin is known for his strong ties with Republican Senator Ted Cruz.

Qatar's attempts to appeal to the American Jewish community comes amid its ongoing isolation with other Arab nations including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which have severed ties with the Gulf state over ties with Iran among myriad other reasons.

Al Zaabi said that the four countries welcome the convening of the panel and restate their condemnation of the imposition of coercive measures because they are contrary to global laws and represent violations of human rights.
