.S. President Donald Trump offered to help Qatar and the other Gulf nations resolve their differences, including through a meeting at the White House, if necessary.

In a telephone conversation with the Amir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Trump reiterated that a united Gulf Cooperation Council and a strong United States-Gulf Cooperation Council partnership are critical to defeating terrorism and promoting regional stability.

He also emphasised the importance of all countries in the region to work together, to prevent the financing of terrorist organisations and stop the promotion of extremist ideology, according to a White House statement.

The telephone talk came, after a diplomatic row erupted between Qatar and the other Gulf nations.

On Tuesday, Trump seemed to claim credit for Gulf nations’ decision to isolate Qatar, saying, his recent visit to Saudi Arabia was “already paying off.”

“They said they would take a hard line on funding extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!” Trump said on Twitter.

White House spokesman, Sean Spicer, told a regular press briefing that, the U.S. wants to see the diplomatic row between Qatar and the other Gulf nations “deescalated and resolved immediately
