“A solution could come in the medium term,” Mevlut Cavusoglu told an Ankara news conference, speaking alongside his visiting Qatari counterpart, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim al-Thani.
Since June 5, Qatar has been under a blockade by several Arab countries -- including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain and Yemen -- accusing Doha of supporting terrorism.
The Qatari government has denied all the accusations, blasting the blockade as “unjustified” and a violation of international law.
Regarding demands for the closure of the Turkish military base in the tiny Gulf state, Cavusoglu said: “There is no such dispute with Americans, nor do they object to it. This is a deal between two sovereign countries. Gulf demands violate sovereignty.”
He described a recent Qatari deal with the U.S. as “prudential” and said “it shows that they are open to dialogue”.
Qatar and the U.S. signed a deal to combat the financing of terrorism, during a visit to Doha by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday, a move that comes as the Gulf crisis continues in the region.
Cavusoglu emphasized that Turkey supported Kuwaiti mediation efforts to resolve the crisis.
