Newsline: Turkish ambassador denies Qatar deployment comments

Fikret Ozer, Turkey’s ambassador to Doha, has denied media reports that he had said Turkey was planning to deploy air and naval forces to Qatar. Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Ozer said that any deployment of Turkish military assets to Qatar would depend upon a bilateral agreement to this effect between the Turkish and Qatari militaries. According to the diplomat, a 2014 military cooperation agreement between Qatar and Turkey contained a provision for the deployment of Turkish forces to the Qatari capital. “Since then, however, no new articles have been attached to the agreement,” Ozer asserted. He went on to dismiss reports in certain media outlets that he had said Turkey was about to deploy forces to Qatar.
