It’s been a week since one of the worst diplomatic disputes in the Gulf region began. And there have been developments almost every hour.

The Qatari foreign minister has been on a diplomatic tour in Europe. He was in London earlier on Monday then Paris to meet his counterparts.

President Donald Trump initially took to twitter to support the embargo, but then called the Emir of Qatar days later offering to mediate, only to criticise the Gulf nation at a News Conference on Friday.

But that same day, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was urging the GCC countries to find a diplomatic solution.

So, what will it take to end the crisis?
