Turkey's FM heads to Riyadh to mediate the Qatar crisis

President Trump who signed a multi-billion dollar defence deal when he toured Saudi Arabia and other Arabian nations just last week seems to be enjoying the trouble brewing in the region since US is reaping the benefits by selling arms and ammunition to the both the parties concerned.

"America's relationship with Qatar is built on the foundation of bilateral security agreements and Qatar's strong role in facilitating U.S. military forward deployment in the Middle East".

Cavusoglu held talks in Kuwait with his counterpart Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Sabah on Thursday to push mediation efforts aimed at resolving the standoff between a Saudi-led alliance and Qatar.

Just in November past year, US has approved a possible sale of F-15QA aircraft to Qatar for $21.1 billion where it can get upto 72 fighter aircrafts.

"This is of course proof that USA institutions are with us but we have never doubted that", Reuters news agency quoted a Qatari official in Doha as saying.


"We encourage all our partners in the region to work towards common solutions that enable regional security", Lieutenant Colonel Damien Pickart, a spokesman for U.S. Air Forces Central Command, said in a statement when the crisis began.

Turkey is friendly to Qatar and has sent food supplies since the sanctions were imposed.

Cavusoglu also said he would visit Kuwait later Wednesday and meet Saudi Arabian king Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud on Friday in Mecca.

The sale "will give Qatar a state of the art capability and increase security cooperation and interoperability between the United States and Qatar", the Defense Department said in a statement. It added that Mattis and Attiyah had also discussed the current state of operations against Islamic State and the importance of de-escalating tensions in the Gulf.

Trump, who took office in January, has accused Qatar of being a "high-level" sponsor of terrorism, potentially hindering the State Department's efforts to help ease the diplomatic crisis.
