Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Qatar on Tuesday to discuss regional and global developments as well as Ankara's bilateral relations with Doha.

The Turkish president, who has called for the lifting of the sanctions against Qatar, is scheduled to visit Doha tomorrow.

Regional and global developments as well as bilateral relations between Turkey and the Gulf countries will also be discussed, the statement added.

A group of nations led by Saudi Arabia and including Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting extremists and fostering ties with Riyadh's archrival Iran. On Wednesday he will visit Qatar, which Ankara has supported and where Turkey has a military base. Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani paid his first visit overseas to Turkey following the crisis and met with Erdoğan to discuss the Gulf dispute in September as well.

The two leaders also witnessed a signing ceremony of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for incentives on direct investment and cooperation protocol on science and technology, following the meeting.
