The United States and its Western allies have vast economic and political interests in the Gulf, which pumps one fifth of the world's oil supplies.

The cyber attack of the systems of Qatar's state news agency in early June was reportedly organized by the UAE, the Washington Post reported on July 16 citing American intelligence officials.

"The Local's staff neither wrote, published nor removed the article in question and The Local can therefore not vouch for any of the claims made", co-founder James Savage said in a statement on Sunday. Also, countries must abstain from hosting terrorist people, those involved in terrorist financing or those wanted by their countries.

The reported evidence shows that on May 23, senior UAE officials discussed the implementation of the hack, which saw statements falsely attributed to Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani, being run by QNA in a text-ticker on-air and on social media.

They were quickly seized on by news organisations outside Qatar, but Doha said they were false.

The United States, a longtime ally of Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, has given mixed signals about its policy on the Gulf crisis.

On a possible exclusion of Qatar from the six member states forming Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the UAE minister pointed out that "Although we may lose the confused and awkward neighbour. we gain clarity and transparency".

The long-brewing spat between Qatar and its neighbors, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, includes accusations that Doha has been cozying up to Tehran.

Media captionThe UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, denies it hacked Qatar's news agency. This was after U.S. president, Donald Trump completed a back to back meetings with the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), including the Emir of Qatar.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he will visit the key players in the crisis - including Saudi Arabia and Qatar - in the next weeks.

He pointed out that the global community has refused Qatar's support of terrorism and extremism, and hosting people wanted in this regard. Qatar's sovereignty and curb freedom of the media prompted the alliance to adopt six principles that repackaged the demands and removed some of the sharp edges.Much like the original demands, those principles also failed to garner the kind of global support the alliance needs to push forward with a tightening of the screws on Qatar.

Sheikh Mohamed said that the common goal of the global community is to combat terrorism and fight its financing, pointing out that the actions taken by the siege countries against Qatar disrupt these efforts.
