UN offers to help resolve Gulf crisis
The United Nations has offered to help resolve the crisis between the Arab states and Qatar.
UN spokeswoman Eri Kaneko said we are observing the situation with deep concern and ready to assist between the parties.
Meanwhile, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has said that he backed Qatar's response to a list of demands issued by Arab states boycotting the Gulf emirate.
He said calls for a Turkish military base there to close were disrespectful.
