US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's first Middle East diplomatic foray ended in failure and humiliation as his push for an end of the dispute pitting Qatar against four Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia led nowhere and President Donald Trump continued to undermine his top diplomat's position in the crisis.

The cyberattack saw the broadcast of fake news claiming that the Qatari Emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani, among other things, had called Iran an "Islamic power" and praised Hamas.

"What we really do want is we either reach an agreement and Qatar's behaviour changes, or Qatar makes it own bed and they can move on and we can move with a new relationship".

The Washington Post cited United States intelligence officials as saying the UAE had orchestrated the posting of incendiary quotes attributed to Qatar's emir that he insisted were fabricated.

New details concerning recent crisis in the Persian Gulf are being revealed while the regional conflict escalates further despite worldwide efforts.

The foreign ministers of Germany and the United Kingdom, along with the USA secretary of state, have all visited the Gulf in recent weeks to try and resolve the dispute.

Qatar has rejected the demands, saying that the list in its entirety infringes on national sovereignty.

These concerns have been present ever since Qatar secured the rights to host the event in late 2010, and have grown in magnitude as Federation Internationale de Football Association became increasingly embroiled in corruption scandals over the past six or seven years. Qatar has denied the accusations.

"Tillerson's spokesperson has said that [Qatar-Gulf crisis negotiations] may be a long process to find any sort of common ground in resolving this conflict", said Zhou-Castro.

Since Qatar's response seemed unsatisfactory to them, the four have made a decision to maintain their sanctions.

The foreign minister affirmed Qatar welcomes the efforts of the France in supporting Kuwaiti mediation and finding a solution based on the sovereignty of states and global law.

The Arab quartet has demanded Qatar end its support of extremist groups, but also its support of Islamist political dissidents they brand as terrorists, but which many Western allies do not. The intelligence believes that the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt were behind the hacking attack on May 24.

Energy-rich Qatar has been defiant throughout the crisis, insisting it can weather action taken against it.

But despite strong mediation efforts by Kuwait and others, governments across the region say they may remain deadlocked for the foreseeable future.

Families of the 9/11 victims have been fighting to bring a case against Saudi Arabia for its alleged role in funding and supporting Al-Qaeda.
