The President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denounced the list of demands placed before Qatar by Saudi Arabia and its allies, over a lingering diplomatic row which is threatening to boil over.
Describing the demands as “against international law”, Erdogan welcomed Qatar’s stand on a list of demands which Doha has rejected and said the measures are “unjustified”.
“We welcome [Qatar’s position] because we consider the 13-point list against international law,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by the state-run Anadolu news agency on Sunday.
Moments after Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs received the list of demands on June 22, Sheikh Saif bin Ahmed Al Thani, director of the Qatari government’s communications office said the illegal blockade is about limiting Qatar’s sovereignty.”
He said; “This list of demands confirms what Qatar has said from the beginning – the illegal blockade has nothing to do with combating terrorism, it is about limiting Qatar’s sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy.”
