A meeting of Gulf foreign ministers failed over the weekend to find a clear way out of a monthslong diplomatic spat with Qatar, although some envoys signaled that progress had been made.Saudi Arabia, along with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, withdrew their ambassadors from Qatar in March in an unprecedented public protest largely believed to be spurred by the tiny nation's support for Islamist groups in Egypt, Libya, the Gaza Strip and elsewhere. Despite weeks of secretive talks, the statement by the ministers Saturday made no mention of a resolution with Qatar.The delegation led by Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, intelligence chief Khalid Bin Bandar and Interior Minister Mohammad bin Nayef then headed to Bahrain to meet the king there, and to the UAE, where they met the country's crown prince in Abu Dhabi.
