Turkey to send humanitarian aid to Qatar through Azerbaijan


(MENAFN- Trend News Agency ) Baku, Azerbaijan, July 18

By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:

Turkey will send humanitarian aid to Qatar using a new transit route that runs through Georgia, Azerbaijan and Iran, Turkish media outlets reported July 18.

This decision was made due to the fact that sending humanitarian aid by plane is more expensive than using the new route, according to the report.

Turkey sent food aid in the amount of 15,000 tons to Qatar on June 20.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE announced about breaking their diplomatic relations with Qatar June 5, accusing Doha of supporting terrorist organizations and destabilizing the situation in the Middle East.

Later, the authorities of Libya, Yemen, as well as the Maldives and Mauritius also announced about severing diplomatic relations with Qatar.
