Speaking at a press conference with his Saudi Arabian counterpart Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir in Berlin, Sigmar Gabriel expressed "grave concern" over the recent tensions.
"Germany and Europe have a very strong interest in preventing further escalation of tensions in the Gulf region. One must seek ways to reach again a better understanding among the Gulf states," he said.
Gabriel underlined that the region was already facing many crises and challenges, and urged conflict parties to refrain from steps which could harm the global coalition to defeat Daesh.
