Share

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed the isolation of Qatar as "inhumane" and "un-Islamic" on Monday.

"It is neither humane nor Islamic to attempt to isolate a country's people in every area from food, to drink, to travel, to commerce, to worship", he said in a parliamentary speech.

Erdogan has also strongly denied accusations that Qatar supports terrorism, arguing the country had been a staunch opponent of the Islamic State group.

In his strongest comments yet on the crisis, Erdogan added that Qatar was a country "on which a death sentence had in some way been pronounced".

The Saudi cabinet's meeting included discussions on the visits of global leaders including Kuwaiti Emir Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, and Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's visits to the Kingdom.
