Turkey, Qatar in consensus to strengthen bilateral relations

-

TALKS to strengthen bilateral relations between Qatar and Turkey were held in Doha on Thursday. While the talks also covered regional developmen­ts in the Middle East, the main take away was that “We will continue to work closely together,” according to the Turkish Embassy in Doha.

The talks were organized via a meeting between the Qatari assistant minister of foreign affairs for regional affairs, Mohammad bin Abdulaziz Saleh Al-Khulaifi, and the Turkish Ambassador to Doha Mustafa Göksu. According to a statement by the Qatari Foreign Ministry, the meeting dealt with “bilateral cooperatio­n and a number of regional issues.”

“Turkey and Qatar will continue to work closely together,” Turkish Embassy in Doha tweeted after the meeting.

Turkish-Qatari relations are witnessing a growing and continuous cooperatio­n at various levels, with high coordinati­on on many regional and internatio­nal issues, including the Libyan crisis and Afghanista­n. In addition to bilateral trade and diplomatic relations, the two countries played a pivotal role in supporting the legitimate Libyan government and defending Tripoli against putschist Gen. Khalifa Haftar’s forces in a 14-month offensive.

They also cooperated to reopen the Kabul airport after the Taliban took over following the government’s fall and the withdrawal of the United States forces.
