    Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani is pushing for talks as a way to end the region's biggest diplomatic crisis in years that was triggered by other Gulf Arab nations.

    Qatar has expressed surprise over the "unjustified" decision by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, UAE, Yemen and the Maldives to suspend relations with Doha, saying that the decision was in "violation of its sovereignty".

    The five countries have also imposed an embargo on Qatar.
