The White House said President Trump discussed the ongoing dispute between Qatar and its neighbors with the President of Egypt, Wednesday, calling on the involved nations to resolve their conflict.
According to Politico, in the Air Force One call between President Donald Trump and President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Trump “called on all parties to negotiate constructively to resolve the dispute”, reaffirming his stance that all countries must follow through on their commitments at the Riyadh Summit to “stop terrorist financing and discredit extremist ideology.”
Both presidents also discussed the growing threat of North Korea, and the launching of its first intercontinental ballistic missile, Tuesday. Trump stressed the importance of implementing fully U.N. Security Council resolutions and stopping economic or military benefits to the nation.
On Sunday, President Trump also made similar calls to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, as well as Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, echoing calls for unity to fight and end terrorism.
