Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and several other countries cut their diplomatic and transport ties with Doha on June 5, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and their archfoe Iran - charges that Qatar says are baseless.
Throughout the interview, Sheikh Mohammed repeatedly denied that Qatar funded extremists and terrorist groups, the main reason given for this week's moves against it.
Kuwait's Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah was met planeside by Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, when he arrived on Wednesday night.
The four governments also closed their airspaces to all Qatari flights and banned Qatar-based news giant Al Jazeera. Trump initially took sides with the Saudi-led group before apparently being nudged into a more even-handed approach when USA defense officials renewed praise of Doha, mindful of the major US military base hosted by Qatar that serves, in part, as a launch-pad for strikes on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
Article 29 of the cybercrime law criminalises any online publication of information "with intent to make sarcasm or damage the reputation, prestige or stature of the state or... any of its symbols". Home to some 10,000 troops, Al-Udeid is central to the US-led fight against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Turkey's parliament, on the other hand, has approved sending troops to an existing Turkish base in Qatar as a sign of support.
Qatar has yet to receive any list of demands from the Arab countries that have cut ties, Sheikh Mohammed said. The agreement did not detail a timeframe or the number of troops. Doha is the world's largest exporter of natural liquefied gas.
Source says Comey told boss about Trump worries
But Coats indicated that he would cooperate with the Russian Federation probe now being led by special counsel Robert Mueller . This latest story is the first evidence that Trump went even further, begging Coates to intervene with Comey's work.
"Whatever has been thrown as an accusation is all based on misinformation and we think that the entire crisis is being based on misinformation", he told CNN.
He suggested Qatar was funding extremism.
"This is a foreign policy that has gone wild", state minister for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash told AFP.
"Qatar has to stop its support of groups such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood", Jubeir said in statements on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Emirati officials shut down the airline's offices in the UAE. "Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!"
Bahrain on Thursday followed the UAE in announcing that expressing sympathy for Qatar over the sanctions was an offence punishable by jail.
