Tillerson Calls On Gulf States To Unite And Resolve Differences

BAGHDAD - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Gulf States to unite and resolve their differences after four Arab countries announced severing their ties with Qatar.

"Of course, we will encourage the parties to sit together and settle differences," Tillerson said during his visit to Australia.

"If there is any role we can play in helping them settle differences, we think it is important that the GCC remain united," he added.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt have announced their severing ties with Qatar.

The relations were completely cut off with Doha, after about two weeks of media interferences between the two parties' media. "
