    French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is visiting Gulf Arab countries in a bid to find a solution to the region's political crisis that has fueled a land, air and sea blockade against Qatar.

    Le Drian is now in the United Arab Emirates after visiting Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

    He is just one of the high-level diplomats wanting to find a way to end the isolation of Qatar by its neighbours - who accuse it of supporting "terrorism".
