    Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, who offered to be the mediator in the diplomatic row between Qatar and several other Gulf states, plans to visit the United Arab Emirates on Wendesday, according to media reports.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, who offered to be the mediator in the diplomatic row between Qatar and several other Gulf states, will arrive in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday to discuss the situation, the Al Arabiya channel reported.

    Late on Tuesday, the Kuwaiti leader returned after his visit to Saudi Arabia where he also tried to assist in settling the crisis between Doha and Riyadh. He made no public statements regarding the outcome of the visit.

    On Monday, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt cut off diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing the latter of supporting terrorist organizations and destabilizing the situation in the Middle East. Libya, Yemen, the Maldives, Mauritius and Mauritania also announce a break in relations with Doha, and Jordan said it will lower the level of diplomatic contacts with Qatar.
