DOHA, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- Qatar supports the call of King Mohammed VI of Morocco for a frank and direct dialogue with Algeria to overcome their differences, the state-run Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported Thursday.
Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that Qatar believes that opening channels of dialogue and diplomacy between the two brotherly countries would remove the cloud of disagreement, the QNA reported.
"Qatar is very confident of the wisdom of both leaderships, their desire to settle long-standing differences and their keenness to uphold the interests of their peoples," the statement added.
In a speech delivered on Tuesday, King Mohammed VI of Morocco expressed his readiness to hold talks with Algeria.
The border between Algeria and Morocco has been closed since 1994 following an armed attack on the Atlas Asni Hotel in Marrakech.
