Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday concluded a military deal with Qatar during an official two-day visit.

The deal involves a military agreement to deploy Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) to Qatar.

The measure was signed by Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz and his Qatari counterpart Khalid bin Mohammad al-Attiyah with the presence of Davutoglu and Qatari Interior Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani.

Davutoglu is also expected to visit the command post of Turkey's ground troops in Qatar later in the day.
