Saudi Arabia opens itself to Skype, WhatsApp and other internet calling services

Saudi Arabia opens itself to Skype, WhatsApp and other internet calling services”

The two nations banned air travel and cut off diplomatic ties to Qatar in June, blaming Qatar for funding terrorism and backing Iran.

The Gulf crisis should be resolved "pretty quickly", US President Donald Trump said following a meeting with Qatar's Emir yesterday.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sheikh Tamim criticised the countries behind the blockade on Qatar in his address to the UN General Assembly.

"It's my great honor to be with the emir of Qatar".

Snap was advised by Saudi Arabian authorities that Al Jazeera's Discover publisher channel violates local laws with other forms of the Qatari news service already unavailable in the country.

It's a simple move, but with basically everyone owning a mobile phone, it's certainly a wide-reaching one (although many of us in the office with Android devices can't see it)...

Al Jazeera, which denies the charge, said Snapchat's actions were a "clear attack on the rights of journalists and media professionals to report and cover stories freely from around the world".

Use of military force by Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates against Qatar would likely throw the region into chaos. 'I think you'd have a deal worked out very quickly, ' he said.

Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom have signed a new agreement to promote cooperation between the two countries across several sectors including defence and security, counter-terrorism, intelligence, training and education, medical services and logistics.

Trump took a similar tone Tuesday.

Trump said on Tuesday that the USA is pushing for an end to the Gulf dispute. We are urging them to review the decision that was made. But we also want to continue trade and many other things'.

"As you said, Mr. President, we have a problem with our neighbors", Tamim said, adding that with Trump's intervention, "hopefully we can find a solution for this problem".
