Saudi Arabia and Arab allies that have cut ties with Qatar will hold talks in Egypt on Wednesday on the Gulf diplomatic crisis, after Doha said their demands were impossible to meet.

The four Arab nations, which also include the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, accuse Qatar  of supporting extremism, a charge which it denies.

They gave the isolated emirate an extra 48 hours to meet their ultimatum after an initial 10-day deadline passed on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia said early Wednesday the four had received Qatar’s response and that they would respond “at the right time”.
