Emir meets Turkish president in Istanbul to discuss Syrian conflict


Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani travelled to Istanbul yesterday to meet with Turkish President Recep Erdoğan and discuss the conflict in Syria as well as “the need for a political resolution to the crisis that maintains the unity of Syrian land,” QNA reported.

The meeting came as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad vowed to regain control of the entire country even as the foreign minister of Saudi Arabia – which, like Qatar and Turkey, supports rebels fighting the Syrian government – said al-Assad has no future ruling the country. Adel al-Jubeir also repeated threats to deploy Saudi ground troops to fight ISIL in Syria.
