Ankara and Doha agreed to establish a Turkish military base in Qatar

46
Turkish ambassador to Qatar Ahmet Demirok reported that Qatari authorities consider it expedient to open a military base of the Turkish Armed Forces in the country. According to Demirok, between Ankara and Doha managed to reach “stable agreements” on the fact that the Turkish contingent of approximately 3-x thousand military personnel will be located in Qatar.


The Turkish ambassador in Qatar did not tell when the opening of such a military base would take place, however, he added that "the political will of the two countries on this issue exists." It is reported that the rapid reaction force will also be part of the Turkish contingent.

Ankara and Doha agreed to establish a Turkish military base in Qatar


Meanwhile, the Iraqi authorities expressed bewilderment that the so-called Saudi coalition, which includes the same Turkey and Qatar (along with, for example, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia), did not even consider inviting Iraq and Syria, considering the fact that it is Iraq and Syria that are now more active than all the countries of the “coalition” combined to fight terrorism. Information Agency TASS transmits the text of the statement of the press service of the Iraqi Cabinet of Ministers:

The head of the Council of Ministers, Heydar al-Abadi, expresses surprise at the creation of a coalition by Saudi Arabia, as well as by the fact that the countries that are actually fighting terrorism, namely Iraq and Syria, are not part of it.


On the eve of a press conference by the President of Russia, a journalist from Egypt asked whether Vladimir Putin considered the Saudi coalition anti-Russian. Putin’s answer was:
We do not even think that this alliance is being created anti-Russian. To fight terror, you need to join forces, and not pull away the available opportunities.

    The Turks in Qatar, under the guise of a military base, create a base on the complicity of terrorism.

      Ankara says it intends to establish a military base in Qatar to defend against "common enemies." However, it is known that Turkey and Qatar oppose Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria, support the Muslim Brotherhood movement, and are also concerned about the growing influence of Shiite Iran in the region.
      It seems that Turkey is running out of money, and the wealthy Qatar really needs troops. А TARGET they have one in common - it is Syrian and Iraqi OIL! Here is Turkey and Qatar and "became friends."

        Turkey’s militancy is off the charts. Is the Ottomans so unlimited faith in their capabilities? Wait for what they get on the horns. Next since they will not choose the leader of a person who imagines that he has nothing to fear.

      Turks, like in NATka, create a coalition, a base with non-NATO. Agreed or what? Then it’s specifically to World War 3 against Russia.

        in Russia, the light converged wedge? Turks will build a base in Qatar against Russia? at least look at the globe where it is.
        Qatar has a fairly independent policy, independent of Saudi Arabia, but has virtually no armed forces. so that the Saudi brothers do not have the temptation to lead a Qatar, a “roof" is needed. Turkey will be such a roof.
        plus there is not far off the World Cup on football, which is built just like ours by the Turks. perhaps security will be delegated to partners.

          In principle, a map of the world will be enough, as well as those maps where global (world) wars were planned or waged. From these maps, it is not difficult to guess (even for me) the direction of the movements of warfare and approximately what they were directed at. Well, you can also see the maps of the daesh, where they plan their "state". You can also take into account ambitions, intelligence and just indirect signals that the Turks are not alien to the idea of ​​the revival of the Ottoman Empire (it’s a shame to get it in the teeth all the time).
          For example, the map of the world shows that minke whales are generally at a distance of entire oceans from their "interests", but nevertheless, Russia is being systematically surrounded by bases-scum. What for?

          The bases are for a long time and this is serious, it is one thing to invite "to be safe", another thing to build a military base to protect the builders.
          Does the creation of a coalition of 34 countries (and without the participation of Russia, Iran, Syria, Iraq, the main players) to fight terrorism tell you what? Many of these countries do not hide their support (both financial and economic) for terrorists. Where do you think the gaze of a very large association of countries will go after the victory on their part of the continent? Who financed the terrorists in Chechnya? Who is funding the gray wolves?
          When we answer these questions for ourselves, the understanding comes that "the world has come together like a wedge in Russia."
          In general, it seems to me that judging by your presentation, you yourself are not a citizen of Russia, tk. even you write the name of the country with a lowercase letter. The Russian writes in this way the name of a hostile country, such as "do not raise the flag."

              And as for "on Russia that the world has come together like a wedge?", The only thing about Russia in the article was the answer of the President of Russia to a question posed by a journalist from Egypt. And this answer was not ambiguous (although I would have thought in his place).
              And yet, the Russian was to write his country with a capital letter. Are you the future father?

          In Qatar, there is the United States Joint Command Headquarters in the region and the US Air Force base, this is someone who can provide shelter to someone. Here the Turks are somehow going to save some of their terrorists and through Qatar from training, it is possible to store weapons and camps for accommodation. But I do not believe in this union, two cunning snakes will not get along for a long time

          Qatar is not able to conduct a completely independent policy, given the presence of an American base and the presence of borders with the Saudis on all sides. The war in Syria was unleashed also because the question was about laying a pipeline from Qatar through the Saudis and Syria to Turkey. Qatar is a Saudi satellite, albeit a rich one.

            the fact of the matter is that ambitions appear with money, and accordingly the desire to go in satellites disappears. accordingly, you need to rely on an alternative force to Saudi Arabia, not Iran? Turkey remains.

      In Qatar, there is still a military base of the main world terrorist - the United States. The Turks should be accommodated between the US Air Force Base "El Udeid" and the capital of the emirate. There, the distance is short, about 30 km, but there is a place. In general, become more funky, gentlemen. For what? And then you will understand.

      In general, the Arab coalition looks rather strange - 34 countries, among which there are warring with each other. Nonsense. But in any case, this is an occasion to draw part of the Daesh forces from Syria to Iraq, Yemen and Sinai.

        There, half of the nigers are even cheaper than in Sudan. They are included there for a simple purpose, if the ground is needed, then buy an army there, assemble hastily and send them to fight, not really worrying about losses, but fight themselves from tanks, artillery and aviation.

        How is the substitution in Yemen? On the front line against the Hussites are Sudanese, Khadievites, southern tribes, Egyptians, mercenaries from all over the world. And the UAE has already returned part of the contingent home.

      In this scenario, talking about "children" is not entirely true.
      There are 2 coalitions
      - Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria
      - USA +64 countries
      Now a third coalition is being created from 34 countries, but already without the United States or Russia and, strangely, without the participation of countries in whose territory the fight against terrorism is ongoing.
      Apparently, the role of the first violin in this coalition will be played by the SA, Qatar and Turkey - that is, countries supporting radical Islam. And one more alarming bell is that this coalition includes Pakistan that has nuclear weapons!
      No one guarantees that a person of extremely radical views will not come to power in Pakistan and nuclear weapons will come under the control of fanatics.
      So, it may be that of the format "Whatever the children amuse themselves with, just not cry!" the world will move to the format - "The rich cry too"

    Does anyone believe in the military might of the coalition being created? Financially - maybe, although oil prices will severely undermine the financial capabilities of this coalition in the near future. These are all "children's sandbox games". But the financial attack on ISIS is much more important. Rather, the blockade. Under which the Saudis with the Qataris and the Turks can fall.

      Underestimate military power as a regional player is not worth it. This is a local analogue of NATO, not global, but in its region, a very powerful player that any global power would have to reckon with when sending its expeditionary force. This building, although it will be a representative of a very powerful country or bloc, will nevertheless be limited at a party, and they are at home. And the saturation of a number of Arab countries with fairly modern weapons and a number of units trained under the guidance of Western experts and having received real combat experience allows them to begin planning the projection of force not only at home, but also a little bit nearby. Another interesting thing: the creation of such a player will force a number of countries to seek an alliance both among themselves and with a global player, and who will be this player is an interesting question.
      And yet this is an attempt to reach a new level of political weight for some of its creators.

    Iran tried to neutralize the actions of the Saudis in Syria by organizing a war in Yemen. When it became clear that the Yemenis could roll out the Saudis, a French aircraft carrier was urgently redirected there and an American was sent. They began to negotiate with Yemen.
    The Arab coalition is called upon to prevent the expansion of the territory of the remaining Assad by bringing the troops of this coalition into the territory of Syria "on legal grounds in order to fight terrorism." The entry of troops should prevent the further liberation of Syrian territory by our Aerospace Forces and the army of Assad. Simply because it can cause an interstate military conflict, which Moscow, naturally, cannot agree to. Daesh is leaked in any scenario. It's about the division of territories.
