DUBAI, June 15 Turkey is not taking sides in a
dispute between Qatar and its Gulf Arab neighbours, Turkey's
foreign minister said on Thursday during a Gulf tour, according
to Arabic media reports.
"Turkey stands on the same distance from Qatar and Saudi
Arabia," Kuwait's Arabic language al-Qabas newspaper quoted the
minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, as telling journalists in Kuwait,
where he is on a visit for talks about the crisis.
Qatar-based Al Jazera carried similar remarks.
He said that sanctions imposed by Saudi Arabia, the United
Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt on Doha over alleged support
for terrorism were not right, according to al-Qabas.
