Relations between Turkey and Bahrain are at an advanced level and cooperation is developing, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said yesterday.

During a meeting with his Bahraini counterpart on the sidelines of the Assembly UN General Meeting in New York, Cavusoglu highlighted the improvement of relations between Turkey and Bahrain.

“We will build on the positive momentum we have recently reached in our relations,” Cavusoglu announced on Twitter.

Relations between the two countries were negatively impacted by Bahrain’s decision to join Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Egypt in imposing a blockade on neighbouring Qatar in 2017. Turkey stood with Qatar and provided it with both military and strategic support to overcome the challenges of the siege.
