U.S. allies in the Middle East continue to praise the Trump administration for helping foster peace in the region.

In a virtual diplomatic conference Friday, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said significant steps were made in resolving its three-year dispute with Qatar. The official attributed the process of normalizing diplomatic ties to President Trump.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE cut ties with Qatar in 2017. Saudi Arabia is now hopeful all countries involved in the Arab-Gulf dispute will reach a final agreement soon.

Kuwait’s foreign minister echoed a similar message.

“As part of the reconciliation efforts led by his majesty Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah,” Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Ahmad Nasser Al-Sabah said. “And in continuation of the efforts by his majesty Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah, Emir of Kuwait and U.S. President Donald Trump to solve the crisis, fruitful discussions have taken place recently in which all sides expressed their keenness for Gulf and Arab unity and stability.”

Qatar’s foreign minister told leaders that efforts are underway to resolve the Gulf crisis just days after White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner visited the region.
