Sheikh Tamim: Qatar ready to talk to end Gulf crisis

Macron is calling for "the embargo measures affecting the people of Qatar, in particular families and students, to be lifted as quickly as possible", the president's office said in a statement after he met with Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.

On June 5, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar, accusing Doha of financing terrorism and extremism.

In its turn, Qatar denies it and says that the crisis is politically motivated.

"We view with concern the fact that 100 days since the start of the conflict no solutions can yet be seen", Merkel told the joint press conference.

Dammam, Paris, Berlin- German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Friday for negotiations to end the Qatari crisis away from public and media attention.

"We are all fighting terrorism to ensure security but we must focus on the roots and causes of terrorism", he said while observing that there may be differences with some Arab countries in identifying the roots of terrorism.

On the first stop, the emir met Thursday night in Ankara with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who's been a major supporter of his country during the three-month-old conflict.

Food price inflation eased in Qatar during August, government data showed, suggesting the country was successful in reducing the impact of the unjustifiable blockade imposed by some Arab states.

The conference was organized by Khalid al-Hail.

In their tweets, they said the so-called "honourable" Iranian regime, which the Qatar representative had referred to, committed destructive acts what no other country in the world had done.
