Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said his country will continue to develop relations with Qatar, despite the objection of opposition parties, Anadolu News Agency reports.
According to the report, Erdogan is paying an official visit to Qatar on Monday to attend the 7th meeting of the Supreme Strategic Committee between the two countries, on the invitation of Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.
"I believe the new agreements to be signed will further strengthen our common ties," Erdogan said to reporters at the Esenboga Airport before leaving for Doha.
Turkey wants to boost its economy with foreign investors from Qatar. While there are 183 Qatari companies in Turkey, there are 711 Turkish companies, 47 of which are 100 per cent Turkish capital, in Qatar.
Turkey-Qatar Supreme Strategic Committee will be held in Doha this year to build strong ties with the Gulf country after the Qatari blockade.
The sixth meeting of the Turkey-Qatar Supreme Strategic Committee was held in 2020 in the Turkish capital, Ankara.
