Turkey plans to use a land route through Iran to export goods to Qatar, Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said on Wednesday.
Zeybekci, who held talks in Tehran on Saturday about opening up a link through Iran, told businessmen and industrialists that technical delegations would meet this week to discuss the plans.
Turkey has been a strong supporter of Qatar in its dispute with its Gulf Arab neighbours, who cut trade and transport links with Doha in June. Turkey has sent cargo planes and ships to Qatar and said it is seeking to increase trade to meet Qatar's needs.
