US President Donald Trump on Tuesday denied warning Saudi Arabia on taking military action against Qatar.

It’s been more than 100 days since the Arab quartet’s boycott against Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting and funding terrorist groups.

Trump predicted that the Gulf conflict with Qatar would come to an end quickly.

“We are right now in a situation where we’re trying to solve a problem in the Middle East and I think we’ll get it solved. I have a very strong feeling that it will be solved pretty quickly,” Trump said during his meeting with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in New York.

Meanwhile, a number people from Arab communities in New York organized a protest rally to condemn Qatar’s support for terrorist organizations. The event took place in light of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.

During the protest, participants held posters with statements accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism, while many others demanded that the international community to put an end to Qatar’s funding of terrorism.

Similarly, other protestors demanded that Qatar be held accountable for attempting to break apart Arab communities.
