After Qatar was isolated by several of it’s Gulf neighbors following allegations of supporting terrorism and allying with Iran, Turkey has announced it’s support for the tiny Gulf country.
The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodogan criticized Saudi Arabia and other countries that formed a union against Qatar, other countries included UAE, Bahrain and Egypt.
A special night session was held in the Turkish Parliament to approve a bill which will allow Turkish Army to conduct joint military exercise with Qatar and the Turkish army will also train the Qatari forces, the new legislation allows Turkey to send more troops to Qatar.
“I want to clearly say that we disapprove of the sanctions on Qatar,” Mr. Erdogan said in a speech on Tuesday evening.
The question which arises from this situation is, Pakistan is a very close ally of Turkey, will Pakistan follow their footsteps and support their “brother”? if this step is taken it comes at the cost of a rift with another great friend particularly of Nawaz Sharif, the Saudis, remember who took the Sharifs in following their exile?
On the other hand Pakistan already has enough on their plate, with pressure from India and constant threat from terrorist organizations, the last thing we need right now is another enemy or even worst a group of them.
