Turkey should "take into account Arab sovereignty and deal with its neighbours wisely and rationally", said Anwar Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs of United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday.
Therefore, Gargash added "support for movements that seek to change regimes by violence does not represent a rational approach to the neighbourhood, and Ankara is required to respect the sovereignty of the Arab states".
The UAE top diplomat stated "the Arab world will not be led by its neighbours, and its current conditions will not remain permanent, and the neighbouring countries should distinguish in dealing with the Arabs between the facts and myths".
After Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and trade relations with Qatar in June last year, Turkey has expanded trade relations with Qatar in order to mitigate the losses triggered by the quartet's boycott.
