US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that the rift between Qatar and its Arab Gulf neighbours had gone on for too long, as the blockade against the gas-rich nation entered its 19th month.
Addressing media in Doha on Sunday, Pompeo argued that the continuing crisis between Qatar and the four blockading nations – Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain – benefited their adversaries.
Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera’s senior political analyst, talks about the apparent bid to end the diplomatic rift between Washington’s Gulf allies.
