Saudi officials welcomed the statements made by US President Donald Trump in which he stressed the need for the State of Qatar to stop financing terrorism.

The source pointed out that the fight against terrorism and extremism is no longer an option, as much as it is a commitment that requires firm and rapid action to cut off all sources for funding terrorism.

"Qatar has a history of financing terrorism at a very high level and I agree with the US Secretary of State and military leaders that Qatar should stop financing terrorism. Now is the time to call on Qatar to stop supporting terrorism," Trump said on Friday.

He called on Doha to stop funding terrorist groups and to be among the countries that act responsibly and called for a quick action to combat terrorism.

"No civilized country can accept this violence or allow this malicious thought to spread to its shores," Trump spoke on a press conference at the White House with Romanian President Klaus Johannis.

“I also hope that the Riyadh Summit will be the beginning of the end to finance and defeat terrorism and I thank Saudi Arabia and King Salman for the extraordinary historic summit,” Trump added.
