Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has completed a tour of Arab countries aimed at resolving the Qatari crisis. During the trip he visited Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait.
In Doha, the head of state held talks with the Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. As reported by the Qatari news Agency, the sides discussed regional issues, paying special attention to the crisis. According to the publication, Turkey and Qatar urged to solve it by diplomatic means.
«The visit of the Turkish President did not bring anything new. A hasty decision taken in the beginning of the crisis, makes neutrality the best option for Turkey», — said the Minister of foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates Anwar Gargash.
