Gulf diplomatic crisis: Turkish troops hold joint training exercises with Qatar counterparts

19 Junio 2017, 07:44 | Crisanna Felipe

The riyal, officially fixed at 3.64 to the dollar since 2001, has been offered as low as 3.6680 since Saudi Arabia and other Arab states cut diplomatic and transport ties with Doha on June 5, accusing it of backing terrorism.

"They have the diplomatic clout and technical know-how", the minister added.

"There was shooting by Saudi border guards. and one Iranian fisherman was killed", the semi-official agency quoted an Interior Ministry official as saying.

Rights group Amnesty International said, however, such measures are "clearly insufficient to address the human rights impact of the arbitrary, blanket measures".

"Diplomats explain & defend our political system.Can be tough when partisan acrimony so high, but there is still no greater country. They said they would look into it but since that day nothing more came", he said.

The important point to keep in mind is that Qatar talks to these actors and does not necessarily give them material or financial support, Juneau says.

"Saudi Arabia can not allow Turkey to establish military bases on its territories", the statement, adding that the country "has no need for this".

Countries including France, UK, Kuwait and Turkey have been trying to act as mediators, but the anti-Qatar alliance has been wary of setting out its detailed demands, the daily reported.

While much has been said about the role of Iran in this dispute, the relations between Qatar and Iran are rather complicated, Juneau says.

He warned Takfiri terrorist groups and their supporters against any move targeting Iran.

Turkish troops have arrived in Qatar to take part in joint training exercises, the Qatari defence ministry has said, as a diplomatic crisis in the Gulf enters its third week.

President Trump has done business with royals from Saudi Arabia for at least 20 years, since he sold the Plaza Hotel to a partnership formed by a Saudi prince.

The four countries have imposed air and sea blockades on Qatari airplanes and vessels coming from and going to the tiny gas-rich Gulf country, using their seas or lands.

Qatar hosts the biggest USA military base in the Middle East, with more than 11,000 troops in Al-Udeid air base, where more than 100 aircraft operate from there.
