Egyptian lawmaker and Director of the Center for Middle East Studies in Paris (CEMO), Abdel Rahim Ali, revealed today that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan demanded financial support from Qatar, during his latest visit to the minor, but rich, Gulf state to help him overcome the tough economic crisis he faces at home.
Erdoğan also wanted to have Qatari financial support for his terrorist and criminal policies in Libya, Ali said.
He added in a statement that the fact that Erdoğan accompanied the Turkish minister of finance, intelligence chief and minister of defense with him in his visit to Doha proved this point true.
The Qatari regime, Ali said, puts its full weight behind Turkish interference in Libya.
He said Qatar and its emir are sick for a foothold in the region, after they were secluded from the regional fold.
Ali described Qatari ruler, Tamim bin Hamad, as the “Emir of Blood.”
He said all indicators show that Erdoğan only wanted to get financial support from Qatar to rescue the collapsing economy of his country.
Ali held Erdoğan’s misguided policies responsible for deteriorating economic conditions in Turkey.
Erdoğan faces a major problem in Libya, especially after almost all countries opposed his attempts to usurp the Arab country’s oil, Ali said in his statement.
He added that Turkey’s relations with Europe keep deteriorating.
Erdoğan visited Qatar to coordinate his country’s positions with Doha and seek ways of supporting the militias that control Libyan capital Tripoli, Ali said.
He called on the international community, including the United Nations Security Council, to intervene to prevent Turkish aggressions on Libya and its people.
The international community, he said, has to commit Erdoğan to getting out of Libya altogether.
