Cavusoglu to visit Qatar and Saudi Arabia

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will visit Qatar today.

During the visit, he is expected to meet his Qatari counterpart Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani and the country's Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Anadolu Agency reported.

Following the visit to Qatar, Cavusoglu will leave for Saudi Arabia to discuss the crisis over Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt severed relations with Doha on June 5, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and Iran - allegations it says are baseless.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed the isolation of Qatar recently, likening the diplomatic stranglehold placed upon it to "a death sentence."
