US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has arrived in Saudi Arabia to hold talks with King Salman, before meeting with his counterparts from the kingdom and the other three Arab states that have imposed a blockade on Qatar.

The visit to Jeddah follows meetings in Doha with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani.  

Tillerson and the Qatari foreign minister also announced that the US and Qatar made an agreement on combating "terrorism" and its financing during the visit.

Abdulrahman Al Thani said the memorandum of understanding has nothing to do with the current dispute.  

But Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates called the agreement "insufficient".
