The End of the Qatar Blockade | Turkey’s Role in Somalia

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt have ended their three-and-a-half year blockade of Qatar. During that time, Turkey stepped in to help its key ally Doha. Now, the latter can possibly help in Turkey’s reconciliation with the rest of the GCC states. Also, we look into Turkey’s expanding relations with countries like Somalia, with the aim of ensuring stability as well as boosting their economy.
