Emir, Erdogan stress on dialogue to solve Gulf crisis

German Chancellor Angela Merkel right and Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani hold a joint press conference after talks at the Chancellery in Berlin

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan received Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and discussed the Gulf Crisis, shortly after he met with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian at the Presidential Complex in Ankara Thursday.

Turkey has supported the Gulf ally against the blockage imposed by the Saudi-led block in terms of military cooperation and basic necessities, including food and medicine.

Erdogan has been a major supporter of Doha since June 5, when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt cut ties and blockaded Qatar, accusing it of backing "extremism" and fostering ties with their rival Iran.

While other Qatari officials have flown around the world this summer to garner support for the nation, the Emir initially remained at home. "Cutting diplomatic ties suddenly, closing global airspace and sea routes - all of which are the steps when one wants to attack a country - were signs of plans for a military intervention", he said.

Pearl recalled that his late son, Daniel - a senior Wall Street Journal reporter who was murdered by Islamist terrorists in Pakistan in 2002 - had interviewed the Muslim Brotherhood's leading cleric, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who is based in Qatar, one month after the Al Qaeda terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The meeting focused on the resolution of the Gulf crisis, as well as bilateral relations, regional problems and worldwide developments, presidential sources said.

Al Zaabi said that the four countries welcome the convening of the panel and restate their condemnation of the imposition of coercive measures because they are contrary to global laws and represent violations of human rights. The closure of the Turkish base was one of 13 conditions demanded by the Saudi-led bloc.

The question is "when will the sides agree to solve the crisis?" said Tuz, adding the Saudi-led bloc didn't make their decision without United States knowledge.

UAE Permanent Representative to the United Nations and other global organisations, Obaid Salem Al Zaabi, has cleared the stance of the four Gulf nations against Qatar, once and for all. "So I expect no solution to the crisis in the short term, but the diplomatic process will start soon", Tuz said. The two leaders also discussed the most prominent regional and worldwide events and exchange views on them.
