Since the rise of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) to power in Turkey in 2002, relations between Turkey and Qatar have witnessed rapid development in various fields.
In a volatile region like the Middle East, the ability of the two countries to maintain strong relations and have a convergence of views on many regional and international matters represents a rare "distinguished experience" that has provided a strong basis for increased interdependence and cooperation between the two allies.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to pay a two-day official visit to the Qatari capital Doha on Monday to attend the 7th meeting of the Turkey-Qatar Supreme Strategic Committee.
His visit comes at the invitation of Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Turkey’s Communications Directorate said Sunday in a statement.
The two leaders are expected to review bilateral relations in all dimensions and discuss steps that can be taken to deepen bilateral cooperation, in addition to regional and international issues.
