France called on Saturday for a swift lifting of sanctions that target Qatari nationals in an effort to ease a month-long rift between the Gulf country and several of its neighbors.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed sanctions on Qatar on June 5, accusing it of financing extremist groups and allying with the Gulf Arab states' arch-foe Iran. Doha denies the accusations.



The French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian repeated his concerns about the effects of the Gulf crisis in a televised joint press appearance with his Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir in Jeddah,

Jubeir said he hoped to a resolution of the worst Gulf crisis in years.
