CAIRO (AP) - U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has sent U.N. political chief Jeffrey Feltman to the Persian Gulf to discuss how the United Nations might work with regional partners to resolve the crisis between Qatar and four Arab nations.
 
U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters that Feltman has already been to the United Arab Emirates - one of the four Arab nations - and was in Kuwait, which is trying to mediate the conflict, on Wednesday.
 
Dujarric says Feltman will be traveling to Qatar's capital, Doha.
 
The spokesman added that Feltman hopes to meet "as many of the people involved" as possible.
 
The four Arab nations seeking to isolate Qatar for its alleged support for terrorism issued a statement Wednesday saying that Doha's response to their demands to end the crisis was "not serious."
