Turkey accuses UAE of supporting terror Al-Shabaab. in Politics Posted May 8, 2020 Turkish side is involved in Qatar, Syria, Libya, Yemen (humanitarian agencies), Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Venezuela, Iran, Euro-asia..etc. They face some temporary set backs in some places like Sudan and Syria..but over all they are marching forward. The Greeks have realized this and are desperately trying to find a way to have living arrangement with Turkish. UAE on the other hand is a helper trying to appear as driver. Might look as driver in poor places like HoA, but everywhere else they are exposed. Even in HoA the likes of UAE are not highly respected or feared in likes of Djibouti.
