Saudi Arabia's King discuss Qatar with Turkish President
Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has spoken by phone with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on lowering tension after Arab powers cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants.
"The importance of regional peace and stability was underlined in the talks, as well as the importance of focusing on the path of diplomacy and dialogue to lower the current tension," Reuters cited the sources as saying.
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, opening up the worst rift in years among some of the most powerful states in the Arab world.
After the talks between Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin said late on Monday they called for dialogue and compromise.
