(Reuters) - Qatar is open to holding dialogue to resolve the crisis with its Gulf neighbours, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told CNN International.

"We are willing to sit and talk," al-Thani said in an interview with CNN, aired on Tuesday.

He said Qatar believed in diplomacy and wanted to promote peace in the Middle East. It was also combating terrorism, he said.

"We are not a superpower here, we are not believing in solving things with confrontation," he said.
