German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Qatari Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani lauded on Friday the Kuwaiti initiative for resolving the Gulf crisis.

The German Government supports His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's efforts for solving the crisis, said Merkel at a joint news conference with the visiting Amir.

Berlin, she added, would continue to encourage the Kuwaiti leadership to pursue the mediation efforts, also underlining necessity to find a peaceful solution to the crisis, involving Qatar on one side and Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on the other.

Chancellor Merkel viewed positively Qatar's readiness to sit at the negotiating table to find a settlement to the issue, hoping that a fundamental solution would be reached.

For his part, the Qatari Amir expressed support for the Kuwaiti efforts and gratitude to the chancellor for her backing at this level, too. The Qatari Amir, who had arrived in Germany from Turkey, would proceed to France.
