Qatar Airways profits $540 million, braces for Gulf crisis

Striking a careful balance, Erdogan stopped short of directly criticizing Saudi Arabia's actions but called on Saudi King Salman to show leadership by solving the crisis.

The isolation of Qatar - labelled a "blockade" by Doha political leaders - also has potentially severe economic implications.

Qatar has defiantly vowed the country is "not ready to surrender" even if it would mean an end to the diplomatic row.

The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin has discussed tensions around Qatar with the crown prince of Abu Dhabi.

The agreement does not contain any specific number of troops to be stationed in the base, or a date for deployment.

Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Tuesday before a meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Qatar's ports and airports are open.

Led by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and others they yanked envoys, cut off trade and transit ties and threatened to expel Qataris from their counties.

If Qatar and Saudi Arabia continued to fight over this, there is real fear the Syrian Resistance fighters, who are also fighting ISIS, may not receive the funding they need to continue.

The Eritrean Information Ministry's statement of support on Monday came despite its previously close ties with energy-rich Qatar.

Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) on Monday called upon the government to play mediatory role in ending the current standoff between Qatar and Gulf states.
