Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, after meetings with senior Kuwaiti officials, said the USA and Kuwait would take new steps to resolve a 3-month-old dispute that pits a Saudi-led coalition, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, against Qatar over its alleged support for terrorist groups and Iran.

The ambassador said that the talks between the two leaders "would build on the outcome of their talks on the sidelines of the Gulf-American Summit in Riyadh in May".

Trump, too, on Thursday offered support. Kuwait has been trying to mediate the dispute.
