On Thursday, the American newspaper “New York Times” said that the Trump administration wants to resolve the Gulf crisis before its departure with the aim of tightening the screws on Iran.
The newspaper added, in a report, that “among the first steps in this direction, the Trump administration is pressing Saudi Arabia to open its airspace for Qatari flights that pay millions of dollars in exchange for using Iran’s airspace.”
The report was followed by an official statement from Kuwait, which led the mediation to resolve the crisis, announcing progress on the reconciliation file in the Gulf.
Doha and Riyadh welcomed the statement, while there was no reaction from the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt.
