Again on Tuesday, the four states - Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain - blacklisted nine organisations and nine individuals "directly or indirectly linked to Qatari authorities" as "terrorist", according to a joint statement carried by Egypt's official MENA news agency.

"I don't believe there are any sensitivities inflicted by the existence of Turkish and USA military bases in Qatar simultaneously", he added. The Arab countries promised that the list of people and organizations supporting terrorism will be updated.

Foreign diplomats have visited the region, urging dialogue to resolve the crisis that is now in its second month.

Regional kingpin Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt broke ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of fostering extremism and later issuing 13 demands, including Al-Jazeera's closure.

On the tweets made by US President Donald Trump against Qatar following the Gulf crisis, al-Attiyah said that Qatar does not implement its policies based on social media or spontaneous tweets. The emir of Qatar on Friday said he was prepared to engage in negotiations as long as his country's sovereignty was not violated.

"The visits on the Gulf tour were productive and successful", Erdogan told lawmakers from his ruling AK Party at a parliamentary meeting. "And then, the next day we were surprised to see what had happened [the blockade]", he said.

The four Arab nations closed their borders to the Qatari people and are deporting Qatari citizens from their countries.

Sky News Arabia, owned in part by Emirati scion Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, will release the documentary, called "Qatar..."

The four states accuse Doha of interfering in their affairs and supporting terrorism, a claim dismissed by Qatar, which contends that the blockade was in violation of worldwide law. "We are going to grow in a major way internationally in the oil and gas sector".
