Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan talked with Saudi Arabia's King Salman and his newly-appointed prestigious President and agreed to step up efforts to end the tensions associated with Qatar [VIDEO], according to sources close to Erdogan. Turkey has offered strong support to Qatar after Saudi Arabia, Egypt and several other countries have attacked Qatar to support terrorism and ceased economic and diplomatic ties with that country.

Termination of all ties at the beginning of June

Erdogan spoke with Saudi leaders and both sides emphasized the determination to strengthen the Turkish-Saudi ties, and the Turkish president congratulated Mohammed bin Salman on the election of the new prestigious President.

"There has been agreement on increased efforts to end the tension in the Qatar-related region," a source from the Turkish President's office said. The leaders of two countries, Erdogan and King Salman, also agreed to talk at four o'clock at the G20 summit of the world's most developed countries, which is going to be held in Hamburg in July. King Salman proclaimed his son as a prestigious president, strongly strengthening the position of the 31-year-old in the situation while Saudi Arabia is seeking the radical re-examination of its economy that is heavily dependent on oil and faces growing tensions in relations with his regional rival Iran.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt broke up all ties with Doha in early June, accusing Qatar of supporting Islamist militants and Iran, which Kenyan officials dismissed as nonsense.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan condemned the isolation of Qatar as "inhumane and opposing Islamic values" after this move and warned that such methods were unacceptable.

Qatar and US have strengthened their military co-operation

"Qatar has shown a very firm stance against the terrorist organization of the Islamic state together with Turkey," Erdogan said in the Turkish parliament. The Turkish President then announced that he would talk about this situation with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, and the Qatari emirate Al Thani, as well as with US President Donald Trump. He had already asked for the crisis to be resolved by the end of Ramadan by promising support to Qatar.

The US sold $ 12 billion worth of combat aircraft to Qatar, just a few days after Trump sparked that country to be a "high-ranking sponsor of terrorism." The sale contract was signed by US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Qatar Defense Minister Khalid Al-Attiyah. As Independent writes, the US sold 36 F-15 fighter aircraft to Qatar.

Trump's allegations against Qatar for sponsoring terrorism were the main reason for Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain's decision to terminate diplomatic ties with Qatar.
