    The Emir of Kuwait, the main mediator in the Qatar-GCC crisis, has warned that the rift may have severe consequences.

     

    Qatar's Foreign Minister Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani is on a European tour to try to gain support and said his focus is on humanitarian consequences.

     

    Furthermore, Qatar Airways is working to cope with new pressures brought on by an air blockade. Its planes can no longer fly over Saudi, Bahrani or UAE airspace.
