News, Qatar -Gulf Crisis Comments Off


  • Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said on Friday Ankara, Doha and Tehran hope to reach a tripartite agreement on transporting Turkish products to Qatar in a practical and cost-effective way.
  • “We’re thinking about alternatives for land trade routes with Qatar,” Zeybekci told Anadolu Agency adding that the easiest way is passing through Iran.
  • He pointed that using cargo planes to carry Turkish products to Doha was not sustainable.
  • “Shipment by sea will gain importance. We foresee that at least four large tonnage ships would go to Qatar monthly but the land route is an alternative for carrying flexible and smaller packages,” Zeybekci added noting that the easiest option is sending these packages through Iran.
