    The sea, land and air blockades imposed by several Arab countries on Qatar has precluded food shipments and led to the cancellation of flights.

     

    US President Donald Trump, who previously praised the severing of diplomatic relations, appears to have changed his stance by telling Doha that he was committed to finding a solution to the crisis.

     

    Meanwhile, Turkey, a regional powerhouse, has declared its full support for Qatar - offering food supplies and fast-tracking a bill in parliament that could lead to thousands of Turkish troops being based in Qatar.
