Speaking after a meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo on 6 July, Egypt's foreign minister Sameh Shoukry said Doha's response was "negative and lacked any content".

"[Qatar's response is] a position that reflects a failure to realise the gravity of the situation", Shoukry said.

"We hope wisdom will prevail and Qatar will eventually make the right decisions", added Shukri, who said the four nations were acting against Qatar within the boundaries of worldwide law, as well as the interest to safeguard regional and global security.

On June 5th this year, the above-mentioned countries in the Gulf, severed diplomatic ties with Qatar citing the latter's support for extremist groups and terrorist organizations, as well as meddling in other countries' affairs.

Qatar, whose worldwide diplomatic and commercial profile has risen dramatically in 20 years, driven largely by gas revenues, denies the charges.

Qatar has refused to comply with the 13 demands made by the Saudi-led quartet, so now the ball is in their court. That second deadline expired early Wednesday morning.

At a press conference held following the meeting in Cairo, Jubeir said: "For any country dealing with Iran, the result is very negative".

The Egyptian foreign minister went on to say that they have passed the stage of only accusing Qatar of funding and supporting terrorism and that they now have proof to back their claims.

Al Mu'allemi stressed that Qatar's continued support for terrorism has made Doha a haven for terrorists. They are also demanding that Doha shut down Al Jazeera, the news network funded by the Qatari state.

Kuwait's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al Hamad Al Sabah met yesterday with the visiting German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel.

SHEIKH MOHAMMED BIN ABDULRAHMAN AL-THANI, Qatar's Foreign Minister.

"We found over 23,000 Twitter accounts driven by Qatar, some of them linked to accounts calling for "revolution" in Saudi Arabia", Information Minister Awwad Saleh al-Awwad told AFP during a visit to Paris.

That might have a negative impact on Qatar's sovereign credit fundamentals.

The company said the likelihood of a prolonged period of uncertainty extending into 2018 had increased and a quick resolution of the dispute was unlikely. Kattouf said the dispute is unlikely to affect the American economy barring further developments.
