BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters on Sunday morning that Saudi Arabia’s list of demands for the Qatar regime was “against international law,” and applauded the latter for their rejection of these requirements of diplomatic reconciliation with their Arab neighbords.

“We welcome (Qatar’s position) because we consider the 13-point list against international law,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by the state-run Anadolu news agency.

“What we are talking about here is an attack on the sovereign rights of a state,” Erdogan further elaborated.

“There cannot be such an attack on countries’ sovereignty rights in international law,” he added.

Erdogan’s comments come just 48 hours after the Saudi regime issued this 13 point list of demands, which included the removal of the Turkish military base near the Qatari capital.

Erdogan, a staunch ally of Qatar, has stood by the Doha regime and even criticized the Arab nations involved in the ongoing boycott.
