Qatari emir welcomes President Erdoğan in Doha

QATARI EMIR WELCOMES PRESIDENT ERDOĞAN IN DOHA

Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani welcomed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Wednesday with an official reception in Doha.

The reception ceremony took place at Doha's Amiri Diwan government complex.

Following meeting the Qatari emir, Erdoğan will attend Turkey-Qatar 3rd High Strategic Committee meeting.

Erdoğan arrived in Doha late Tuesday as part of the last leg of his official visits to Russia and Kuwait.

Turkey backs Qatar in the Gulf crisis that was triggered in June when Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the U.A.E. and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar.

The four states accuse Qatar of supporting terrorist groups -- the allegations Doha denies, describing the embargo as a breach of its national sovereignty.
