Erdogan: Qatar isolation violates Islamic values

Source: Reuters

“Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan denounced the isolation of Qatar by neighboring states as a violation of Islamic values and tantamount to a ‘death penalty’ against Doha in a crisis reverberating through the Middle East and beyond. Erdogan’s comments marked the strongest intervention yet by a powerful regional ally of Doha eight days after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar and imposed stringent economic sanctions on it.” (06/13/17)
