Qatar has been the main backer of agreements between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the prime minister of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez al-Sarraj.
However, the same agreements have caused massive devastation in Libya and given foreign mercenaries the opportunity to do whatever they want in the North African state.
Qatar continues to provide Erdoğan with an endless supply of money so that he can implement his agenda in Libya.
The Turkish president wants to spread his influence in the restive state and revive the Ottoman caliphate, all with the aim of usurping the wealth of this state.
Visit to Doha
Erdoğan’s latest visit to Doha drew mixed reactions.
Qatari assistant foreign minister Lolowah al-Khater referred to the presence of identical positions on regional issues in both Doha and Ankara.
She told the Qatari news channel, al-Jazeera, that both capitals back the GNA.
“They support the GNA on the road to finding a political settlement to the conflict in Libya,” al-Khater said. “They want to serve the interests of the Libyan people.”
Nevertheless, al-Khater noted that both Doha and Ankara want the GNA to impose its control on all Libyan territories.
She said Erdoğan’s latest visit to Doha came within the framework of strong relations between Qatar and Turkey.
She added that both countries also discussed means of increasing political and economic cooperation.
Qatari Foreign Minister Mohamed bin Abdelrahman al-Thani praised strategic relations between his country and Turkey.
“Strategic relations between Turkey and Qatar become stronger day after day,” Abdelrahman wrote on twitter on July 3.
