Saudi Arabia lifts VoIP ban on FaceTime, Snapchat, Skype

Saudi Arabia lifts VoIP ban on FaceTime, Snapchat, Skype”

Saudi Arabia has recently undertaken major steps toward opening up its society, including allowing foreign investors to take 100 per cent ownership of companies and directing organisations to provide transportation for female employees, as women are not permitted to drive in the country. Qatar is home to the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East.

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

The US president, who called the emir "a friend", said after Tuesday's meeting that he believed the dispute would be solved quickly. "And I think we'll get it solved, I have a very strong feeling that it will be solved pretty quickly", Trump said in NY as he met Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the White House press service reported.

"We have a lot to talk about - trade, military cooperation, security cooperation", he said, further adding: "We have a problem with our neighbors, and your interference will help a lot". It is certainly in the United States' interest to see this issue resolved as quickly as possible to boost USA ties with critical allies, thwart Iran's escalating regional aspirations, and prevent other world powers from asserting themselves and outmuscling the U.S.in the Gulf.

The standoff has yet to be resolved, despite efforts by Kuwait to mediate. The Saudi-led coalition responded with a statement saying that a "military solution was never and will never be on the table".

Trump met with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, at the United Nations on Tuesday.

"We have always said that we are open to dialogue and we will always be open to dialogue", he said.

The Saudis, the UAE, and Bahrain cut off relations with Qatar on June 5.

The company's establishment is consistent with the ambitions within Vision 2030 to increase the Kingdom's cultural and entertainment offering, to create new employment opportunities, and to make use of the wealth of talent and energy among Saudi youth.
