ERDOGAN APPROVES TURKISH TROOPS DEPLOYMENT TO QATAR

Closed

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has approved legislation for increased military cooperation with Qatar, including a deal for the deployment of Turkish troops there.

Government officials said that legislation was rapidly passed in parliament on Wednesday, a day after Erdogan openly sided with Qatar and criticized other Gulf countries’ moves to isolate it.

The move is a sign of support for the Gulf state in its dispute with its regional neighbors.
