His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and His Highness the Deputy Emir Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad al-Thani have sent cables to Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May in which they expressed strong condemnation of the terrorist bombing that took place in the subway station in southwest London, and stressed Qatar's firm position rejecting terrorism regardless of motives or reasons, wishing the wounded a speedy recovery.

His Highness the Emir thanked Merkel for the efforts made by Germany and its role in resolving differences through dialogue as well as its support for the Kuwaiti initiative, which Qatar has been supporting from the beginning and will continue to support until a solution that satisfies all parties is reached.

The Qatari emir met earlier on Friday in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said the crisis would be resolved only through quiet diplomacy.

The visit is the third trip, after Turkey and Germany, of the Qatari emir's first foreign tour since the crisis began.

"We are fighting terrorism, but we must focus on the roots and causes of terrorism".

"We can not solve the problem in public, we must use diplomacy to reach fair results to end the conflict away from public and media attention", Merkel said.

Meanwhile, many Southwest Florida residents remain frustrated that they are among the minority still without power. Never touch any downed or low-hanging wire, including telephone or cable wires that touch a power line.

Since June Qatar is isolated from its neighbours - Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with it over its close relations with Iran and its alleged support for extremists.

"We won't solve this conflict in the open with everyone in the world voicing their opinion", she said, calling for talks "that are not reported in the newspaper every day".

"We can not solve the problem in public, we must use diplomacy to reach fair results to end the conflict away from public and media attention", Merkel stressed. "We may disagree with some Arab countries on defining the roots of terrorism, but we agree on the need to fight it", he added.
