ALGIERS - Algeria expressed "deep concern" on Tuesday after several Arab states cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, appealing to the countries involved to resolve their differences through dialog.

"While calling on all the countries concerned to adopt dialog ... Algeria appeals for the need to observe, in all circumstances, the principles of good neighborliness and non-interference in the internal affairs of states," said a foreign ministry statement carried by state news agency APS.

It said Algeria remained confident that the current rift would be temporary, despite "real challenges" to Arab unity and solidarity, "not least terrorism."

The statement was Algeria's first official comment since Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed diplomatic relations with Qatar in a coordinated move on Monday.
