America’s top diplomat, the US Secretary of state Rex Tillerson is back in Gulf to resume the mediation efforts between the two disputing parties and the end the ongoing crisis.
He will be visiting Saudi Arabia and Qatar as part of a regional tour. In his last visit in July, he was unable to convince both the parties despite his intense talks and this time around he has already said that the possibility of quick solution must not be expected.
He has blamed the Saudi-led group of countries for the lack of progress.
The Saudi-led group accuses Qatar of supporting “terrorism”, an allegation strongly denied by Doha.
