Qatar is ready to sit at the negotiating table to try to end a dispute with its Gulf Arab neighbors, Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani said Friday while in Berlin.Qatar denies supporting extremism, saying the crisis is politically motivated.Its foreign minister has said the country's intelligence service would play a role in clearing up accusations that Qatar supports terrorist groups.Following the meetings with Merkel, the emir went to Paris for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.In a statement released after meeting with Sheikh Tamim, Macron urged the lifting of a Saudi-led embargo on Qatar in effect since June.Among demands the Arab nations made of Qatar in June is for all Turkish troops in the country to be expelled. Others include limiting diplomatic ties to Iran, shutting down the state-funded Al-Jazeera satellite news network and other media outlets and severing ties to all "terrorist organizations," including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah.
