Turkey sending troops to Qatar as Erdogan slams Doha isolation

Qatar must stop funding terror extremist ideology TrumpMore

Turkey's decision to send up to 3,000 troops to Qatar further cements their growing ties, but it virtually eliminates a possible role for Ankara to mediate between Qatar and the Gulf states that have chose to isolate it for alleged support of terrorism.

"We appreciate the cool-headed and constructive attitude which Qatar has shown", he said.

He called on Saudi Arabia and other countries of the region to end their sanctions, rejecting accusations by these countries that Qatar supports terror groups.

Qatar and Turkey have also backed opposition groups in the Libyan civil war, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and also supported rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria.

Turkey hopes the Qatar crisis will be resolved through a dialogue, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said.

Relations between Ankara and Washington have been strained over the U.S. decision to arm Syrian Kurdish militia in the fight to recapture the Islamic State group bastion of Raqa in northern Syria. Diplomatic sources indicate that Ankara has also been lobbying Washington with a degree of success to prevent it from declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states accuse Doha of supporting extremist groups, but Tillerson suggested that all sides needed to do more. Some analysts believe the Saudi anger is rather because Qatar acts more independently of Riyadh, including partially in its relations with Iran.

New Trump FBI pick represented Christie in Bridgegate case
In an early morning two-sentence tweet , Trump said he meant to nominate Christopher Wray , a high-ranking official in George W. His choice will be particularly closely scrutinised after the president fired James Comey from the position last month.

The Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said the resolution was "baseless" and "also against the spirit of alliance and partnership between Turkey and the US".

On Thursday, he said Doha would not surrender the independence of its foreign policy to the hostile Arab countries.

Pro-government analysts, on the other hand, see a conspiracy against Qatar and claim Turkey is next in line to be victimized.

The House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the violence that took place a month ago against protesters outside the Turkish embassy in Washington D.C. and urging the Turkish government to take responsibility, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday. Qatar, which imports a large majority of its food, was thrown into crisis.

Speaking to reporters at the entrance of his hotel in the capital Ankara, Iran was facing "concerning developments" in the region and added: "We need to have close exchange of views with Turkey about these incidents".
