President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in Istanbul on Monday.

According to reports, the meeting took place at the historical Huber Mansion in Istanbul's Tarabya district and was closed to the press.

Turkey and Qatar enjoy strong bilateral relations in addition to close regional ties and share similar views on regional issues.

In April, Ankara and Doha signed a military agreement to deploy Turkish troops at a military base in Qatar to confront common enemies in the region.

Turkey's military base in Qatar is expected to be its first overseas military installation in the Middle East with 3,000 ground troops to be stationed.
