Turkey Not Reviewing Military Base in Doha

Turkey’s Defense Minister Fikri Isik said on Friday his country had no plans to review its military base in Doha, Qatar, and that any demand for its closure would represent interference in Ankara’s relations with the Persian Gulf state. Isik told broadcaster NTV that he had not seen a demand for the base to be shut.  “The base in Qatar is both a Turkish base and one that will preserve the security of Qatar and the region,” Isik said in an interview, Reuters reported. Four Arab states boycotting Qatar over its alleged support for terrorism have sent Doha a list of 13 demands, including closing Al Jazeera television and reducing ties with Iran, an official of one of the four countries said.
