No country has the right to debate or oppose the Turkish military base in Qatar, the country's Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said Friday. Speaking during a joint news conference after a meeting with Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu in Ankara, Al Thani said:
"As long as there is a legally-valid agreement, then no state has the right to debate or object."
The Qatari minister thanked Turkey once again for its support during the blockade by Arab states.
"On this occasion, I would like to deliver on behalf of the Qatari state and government our thanks to the Turkish Republic, President and Foreign Minister" Al Thani said, adding that the Saudi Arabia-led blockade imposed on his country is illegitimate and based on unfounded accusations.
