Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, who is now on a tour of Europe, said Qatar maintains its stance on dialogue to resolve the dispute with its neighbouring Arab states.

In early June, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates broke off diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs.

His Highness the Emir thanked Merkel for the efforts made by Germany and its role in resolving differences through dialogue as well as its support for the Kuwaiti initiative, which Qatar has been supporting from the beginning and will continue to support until a solution that satisfies all parties is reached.

"It's cause for great concern that after 100 days a solution to this conflict is still not in sight", she said.

For his part, Sheikh Tamim said Qatar maintains its stance on dialogue to resolve the dispute with its neighboring Arab states.

"Qatar is on way to become subservient to Iran as it allows Tehran to breach its sovereignty, control its foreign policy matters and run its domestic affairs", they said, noting that now Doha has become the mouthpiece of Tehran, and turned to be its main agent and spy in the Arab region. "And I don't believe the current regime in Qatar is acting for the good of my people".
