German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday she was very worried about the situation around Qatar and called on all regional powers to sort it out together, during a press briefing in Mexico City.

"This situation is deeply concerning, and we hope that Gulf Cooperation Council members will work together… A political solution can only be found when everyone is in contact with each other," she said.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and embargoed all sea, air and land traffic to the country. Other nations have followed suit, accusing Qatar of supporting terrorists and destabilizing the Middle East.

Speaking alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, Merkel said Turkey and Iran needed to work together with other nations in the region to address the Qatar crisis, but also on Syria, Libya and Iraq.

The chancellor said Germany had no mediating role in the Qatar issue but would act in its own interest to combat terrorism and preserve the balance in the region.
