The House of Representatives unanimously voted for criminal charges to be pressed against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security guards who participated in attacks on protesters in Washington, D.C. during his visit last month.

Turkey had initially tried to position itself as an honest broker in the dispute among the Arab states.

Ankara this week has said it was ready to help defuse the diplomatic spat between Qatar and Arab nations in what has become the biggest diplomatic crisis to hit the region in several years.

"If Qatar gives in to this pressure" from its Arab neighbors, Mr. Dalay said, "that will mean that Turkey's role in the region will be further constrained".

But Erdogan on Tuesday threw caution to the wind in criticizing the sanctions imposed on Doha, saying Turkey meant to develop ties with Qatar whose emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani was one of the first leaders to support Erdogan after last July's failed coup.

On June 5, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Yemen cut ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism.

"We appreciate the cool-headed and constructive attitude which Qatar has shown", he said.

House GOP backs bill to undo much of Dodd-Frank
Congressman Steve Knight (R-Palmdale) was one of the 233 Republicans to vote in favor of the bill, with all but Rep. Instead, making small tweaks to Dodd-Frank, such as providing relief for community banks , is more probable.

He then convened a special session of Parliament on Wednesday night to authorize the dispatch of up to 3,000 troops to Qatar and hold military exercises with the country.

Support hashtags have been among the most popular on social media in Turkey since the start of the crisis including #KatarYalnizDegildir meaning "Qatar is not alone". Qatar has always been accused of leveraging the presence of base and its importance to the USA for its own political autonomy, hosting many of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood exiles, scholars and activists as well as members of Hamas' senior political bureau.

Relations between Ankara and Washington have been strained over the USA decision to arm Syrian Kurdish militia in the fight to recapture the Islamic State group bastion of Raqa in northern Syria.

Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani earlier acknowledged Iran's readiness to supply food for his country.

Verda Ozer, a foreign policy analyst for Hurriyet, argued that there is a perception among many regional countries that Turkey inclines toward Qatar.

"If there is Qatar on one side and the rest of the Gulf states on the other, one must be very careful", said Dr. Ali Faik Demir, a member of the Galatasaray University International Relations Department.
