Four states that cut ties with Qatar urged the tiny Gulf country to commit to six principles on combatting extremism and terrorism and negotiate a plan with specific measures to implement them – a step that could pave the way for an early resolution of the crisis.Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain broke diplomatic relations with Qatar in early June largely over their allegations that it supports terrorist and extremist groups – a charge Qatar rejects.
