This was reflected clearly in the list of demands that was sent to Qatar recently by Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries via Kuwait to end the row that started June 5 when these countries chose to sever diplomatic ties and impose a blockade on Qatar.
Mr. Emamzadeh pointed out that in his meeting with "Jaber al-Harmi" the then editor of Al-Sharq newspaper (one of the most significant Qatari newspapers), Jaber al-Harmi told him that, ; "my generation and our fathers only known Shiraz (Iranian close city to Doha) for their shopping, health care and entertainment!"
Israeli media reports suggest that the first steps could include Israeli businesses opening up in Saudi Arabia and the country's national carrier El Al flying through Saudi airspace. He attended a dinner at the Kuwait Embassy and met al-Jubeir on Tuesday, before joining Tillerson on Wednesday.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Qatar's foreign minister, has already said that any negotiations will begin only after the blockade regime is softened, that is, without ultimatums and pressure, but as partners.
Meanwhile, Kuwait, which has recently dispatched a high-ranking official to Washington to meet with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is trying to work with the American side on finding the best solutions to guarantee Doha's compliance with the list of Gulf demands. Tillerson struck a more diplomatic tone, calling on Saudi Arabia and the others to ease their blockade of Qatar while urging everyone to do more to stop funding for extremism. The list further demanded the handover of citizens of four countries involved in terror activities and stop funding any extremist entities that are designated as terrorist groups by the USA; and provide detailed information about opposition figures that Qatar has funded.
Yet as the demands by Qatar's neighbors grew in scope - far surpassing the original focus on terror financing - the White House sought to distance itself from the crisis.

Asked by reporters on a visit to Washington if the demands were non-negotiable, Saudi´s Jubeir said: "Yes".
On the other hand, symbolic concessions on Qatar's part, similar to those during the last crisis in 2014, when Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain pulled their ambassadors out of Doha, would be nearly impossible to justify internally in the states that have issued the ultimatum.
On June 23, a list carrying 13 demands prepared by Arab countries, who severed diplomatic and economic relations with Qatar on allegedly supporting terrorism, had been handed over to Doha. He also raised the possibility of expelling Qatar from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which he said was certainly under discussion.
