 Arab states should give Qatar list of actionable demands - U.S.s Tillerson
| Reuters

WASHINGTON U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday the United States hopes that Arab countries involved in a diplomatic split with Qatar will soon present Doha a list of "reasonable and actionable" demands to move the crisis toward a resolution.

"We understand a list of demands has been prepared and coordinated by the Saudis, Emiratis, Egyptians and Bahrainis," Tillerson said in a statement. "We hope the list of demands will soon be presented to Qatar and will be reasonable and actionable."

Tillerson said the United States backs a Kuwaiti mediation effort aimed at resolving the crisis. His comments came a day after the State Department said it was "mystified" that the Gulf states had not yet offered the grievances that prompted a diplomatic break with Qatar.
