Turkish president visits Kuwait for 'cooperation' talks

14 Novembre 2017

Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday he will discuss a solution to the five-month dispute between Qatar and its Gulf Arab neighbours during a visit to Kuwait.

Earlier Tuesday, Erdoğan met Kuwaiti Prime Minister Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah and parliament speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim.

Erdogan was accompanied by a large delegation including his wife Emine Erdogan, Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar, Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci and Energy Minister Berat Albayrak.

The Turkish president, who has called for the lifting of the sanctions against Qatar, is scheduled to visit Doha tomorrow.

The Minister added that the west African country was experiencing other challenges that must be collectively addressed. What they are likely to get are minimum amounts of $10,000 (N3.5m) and maximum amounts of $300,000.

The meeting between the two leaders was held at Bayan Palace, where Turkey's relations with Gulf countries also came under discussion.

Turkey backs Qatar in the Gulf crisis that was triggered in June when Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the U.A.E. and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar.

The four states accuse Qatar of supporting terrorist groups - the allegations Doha denies, describing the embargo as a breach of its national sovereignty.
