Turkish President defends Qatar, says he intends to develop ties

Turkey publicly chastises United States ambassador for violent DC protests Turkey Offers Mediation to Resolve Qatar Dispute

Erdogan stood to defend Qatar on Tuesday, saying he intends to "develop" ties with the embattled Gulf state hit by sanctions from Saudi Arabia and its allies. The Resolution continues: "the United States should take steps to strengthen freedoms for the press and civil society in countries such as Turkey, and combat efforts by foreign leaders to suppress free and peaceful protest in their own countries".

During his visit to Paris, Al-Jubeir stated that Arab Gulf states want to see Qatar implementing the promises it had made a few years back with regard to its support of extremist groups, to its hostile media and interference in affairs of other countries.

The Turkish military is building a base in the emirate that will eventually host 10,000 troops under a pact in which Turkey agreed to defend Qatar militarily in the future.

Both pieces of legislation, which were in the pipeline before the recent diplomatic crisis between Doha and other Arab states kicked off, are expected to be approved by parliament on Wednesday.

USA lawmakers, outraged over an attack on protesters in Washington by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's bodyguards, overwhelmingly approved a scathing measure Tuesday that calls for criminal charges against those responsible for the violence.


Turkey's main exporters' body said it was ready to meet food and water supply demands from Qatar, after a Qatari official said Doha was in talks with Iran and Turkey to ensure trade disruptions did not create shortages.

By virtue of an agreement signed in 2014, Turkey has built a military base which can host 3,000 men in Qatar.

Qatar's foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani disputed a Saudi statement accusing Qatar of "embracing terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at de-stabilizing the region".

The base where the Turkish troops would be sent was created to serve primarily as a site for joint training drills, Turkey's former ambassador to Qatar, Ahmet Demirok, told Reuters in 2015.

While Turkey helps rebels trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad, Tehran is a regime ally with Moscow and provides Assad with military support. Bilateral and regional issues - including Syria stalemate and Arab Gulf's diplomatic crisis - are due to be discussed.
