Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani will visit Turkey on Thursday to meet President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his first trip overseas since the start of the Gulf diplomatic crisis.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber al-Mubarak al-Sabah met with Erdogan at his presidential palace.

The Gulf crisis erupted after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt cut ties with Qatar accusing it of backing extremism and fostering ties with Iran on June 5.

Few countries, including Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian government which came to power after toppling the country's first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation.

The four Arab states calling to fight terror have reiterated that the measures that they have taken against Qatar are legitimate sovereign decisions that are by no means a "siege" but a boycott resulting from the damage caused by the irresponsible actions of Doha through its support, financing and harboring of terrorism and terrorist groups, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

While other Qatari officials have flown around the world this summer to garner support for the nation, the Emir initially remained at home.

"The Gulf states were planning military intervention".

During the meeting, the two leaders held talks on "bilateral ties and regional issues especially the Gulf crisis".

"Turkey's move both prevented a possible intervention and also forced the Gulf states to compose a list of demands for Qatar to start negotiations". The closure of the base was one of the conditions laid by the Saudi-led bloc for the lifting of the sanctions, which was rejected by Doha.

The question is "when will the sides agree to solve the crisis?" said Tuz, adding the Saudi-led bloc didn't make their decision without USA knowledge.

"We welcome the convening of the panel discussion and reiterate our condemnation of the imposition of coercive measures because they are contrary to global laws and violations of human rights", Al-Zaabi said.

"The crisis has many dynamics".

The two leaders are also expected to discuss how to boost economic ties.
