Recep Tayyip Erdogan : Turkey FM in Saudi for talks on Gulf crisis


Iran and Qatar are in tune regarding some regional issues while having their own disagreements as well.

Doha vigorously denies the accusations, characterizing the allegations as an "unjustified" attempt to isolate the country diplomatically.

He said Turkey wants the crisis to be resolved through dialogue with all parties coming together.

Mr Faki warned that if the rift is allowed to escalate further, it could have adverse political, security and humanitarian implications for the Gulf states, Africa and worldwide peace and security. Qatar's ties with Iran, with whom it shares a major offshore natural gas field, is another criticism of the Arab countries. "The Middle East is a political and a military powder keg", said Gabriel to reporters.

As I wrote this month, the outgoing USA ambassador to Qatar briefed participants in a policy conference in Washington on progress Qatar has made in cracking down on terror financing, a view that is not shared by the Treasury Department or experts inside the intelligence community. Earlier this week, he met with the Emirati and Saudi foreign ministers in Washington. Giving Turkey a larger role in Gaza through Hamas at the same time that Turkey has been making a serious push for influence among Palestinians in East Jerusalem is also risky, as Turkey has larger ambitions for influence within Israel and the Palestinian territories than Qatar does.

Initially, Trump delivered strong words for Qatar, going so far as to say that it was "unfortunate" that "the nation of Qatar ... has been a funder of terrorism, and at a very high level", and continued on to add that "the time has come to call on Qatar to end its funding". In November, under the administration of former President Barack Obama, the United States approved a possible sale of up to 72 F-15QA aircraft to Qatar for $21.1 billion.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media in the Roosevelt Room of the White House after meeting with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Washington, U.S. May 16, 2017. Qatar hosts a big US military base housing the headquarters of USA air forces in the Middle East.

Separately, at a joint news conference alongside British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said his country was working on a list of complaints against Qatar, according to a Saudi news channel.

Speaking upon his arrival to Kuwait, after having visited Doha, Cavusoglu said that Turkey regards both Saudi Arabia as equally valuable allies.

The Pentagon said the jets sale would increase security cooperation between the United States and Qatar and help them operate together.

"Saudi Arabia is important and the Saudi King is respected by everyone". It has forced us to assert that no other nation can dictate to the United States how we will address such disputes.
