U.S president calls on Gulf nations to help resolve Libya conflict

US President Barack Obama has expressed his concern over Libya.

He is calling on nations in the Gulf to do more to help resolve the on-going conflict.

Obama is accusing some of Gulf nations of fanning the flames of conflict rather than resolving it.

Divisions have emerged among Gulf nations on Libya, with the UAE reportedly bombing Islamist targets in the country, and Qatar expressing reservations about such operations.

Obama is due to host leaders of the six leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council – from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE – next month at the White House.
