Turkey’s statements on the Gulf crisis

The Saudi Prince, Abdul Rahman bin Musaed, commented on the statements of the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, about Lebanon’s crisis with the Gulf, which arose due to the statements of the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Qardahi, regarding the Yemen war.
On his Twitter account, the Saudi prince repeated Cavusoglu’s statements in which he affirmed Ankara’s readiness to help resolve the crisis with the Gulf.

Cavusoglu had expressed his hope that Lebanon would overcome the crisis that had arisen between it and a number of Gulf countries, stressing Turkey’s readiness to provide any assistance in this field.

The diplomatic crisis erupted between Lebanon and the Gulf states after the publication of a televised interview that was recorded with George Kordahi before assuming his post as Minister of Information in Lebanon, in which he considered that the Yemeni Ansar Allah group was “defending itself in the face of an external aggression against Yemen for years”, which exacerbated the crisis further. Kordahi refused to apologize.

After that, Saudi Arabia announced summoning its ambassador to Beirut, and giving the Lebanese ambassador in the Kingdom 48 hours to leave the country, and Kuwait, the Emirates and Bahrain joined them in this decision, and the Kingdom also announced that it would stop the entry of Lebanese imports into its lands.
