Qatar ready to reconcile between Turkey, Saudi Arabia
Qatar is ready to mediate between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, an official said Monday.
Mutlaq Al-Qahtani, Special Envoy of the Qatari Foreign Minister for Combating Terrorism and Mediation in the Settlement of Disputes, made the offer in a statement.
Speaking at a symposium dubbed "Policy and Experience of the State of Qatar in Mediation and Conflict Resolution” organized by the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, the envoy responded to a question about Qatar's willingness to mediate and ease tensions between Turkey and Saudi Arabia or between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
"This is due to the principle of consent as a basic principle in international relations.
"If these two countries see that the State of Qatar has a role in this mediation, then it is possible to do so," Al-Qahtani said.
"It is in everyone's interest that there be friendly relations between [all] these countries,” he added.
