Tillerson said that taking “some of these issues off the table” could create an opening to more meaningful talks between the Gulf neighbors, but “the final and ultimate resolution may take quite a while.”

The standoff has taken a toll on Qatar’s economy. Food prices rose at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in June, the fasted pace since 2015, and ratings agencies have downgraded the nation’s credit worthiness.
