Algeria, France call on Arab states to resolve differences through dialogue

Algeria expressed "deep concern" on Tuesday after several Arab states cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, and appealed to the countries involved to resolve their differences through dialogue.

Algeria said it is confident that the rift is temporary, despite "real challenges" to Arab unity and solidarity, "not least terrorism".

Meanwhile, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drain met with his Saudi and Qatari counterparts on Tuesday and with a representative of UAE's Crown Prince on Wednesday to discuss the issue, before heading to Egypt for a scheduled visit on Thursday.

In another development, Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber al-Sabah will arrive in Saudi Arabia as a mediator.
