The phone call was initiated from Qatari side after US President Donald Trump had recently asked all the Gulf countries to enter into dialogue for resolving the crisis.

Hours later, the public prosecutor tweeted a section of the kingdom's terrorism law, which states: "Endangering national unity, obstructing the Basic Law of governance or some of its articles, and harming the state's reputation or status are terrorist crimes".

Muraikhi also hailed Iran as an "honorable country", adding that the Tehran-Doha relations had warmed since the blockade.

The bitter dispute between Gulf states and Qatar threatened to deepen amid a slanging match between rival ministers over the status of Iran.

The Arab League meeting on Tuesday witnessed a 30-minute altercation between diplomats from Qatar and the four states boycotting it.

Qattan said the four Arab states have taken the sovereign measures against Qatar because of its wrong policies in terms of supporting and financing terrorism and hosting those involved in terrorism on its territory, spreading hatred and interfering in the internal affairs of other states.

As a result of the Saudi lead bloc voting to enact the restrictions in June, Qatar had seen its only land border closed, a ban on all ships flying its flag from most ports, and a large swathe of the Persian Gulf's airspace closed to both Qatari aircraft as well as foreign carriers destined for Doha. "The Qataris will be held responsible for such a decision".

On Friday, Mr Odah had expressed hope on Twitter that a telephone conversation between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani signalled an end to the dispute.

In June of this year, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain joined forces in imposing far-reaching measures against Qatar, accusing it of propping up terrorist organisations including Al-Qaida, ISIS and Hezbollah.

Qatar has denied supporting extremism, saying the crisis is politically motivated.

Moreover, Shoukry rejected Muraikhi's comments as "unacceptable" and "baseless insults".
