ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday denounced the isolation of Qatar as "inhumane and against Islamic values," and said the methods used against the Gulf state were unacceptable.

Erdogan's defense of Qatar, in a parliamentary speech to members of his ruling AK Party, comes after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt severed relations with Qatar last week, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and Iran - allegations Qatar says are baseless.

Erdogan also said that Saudi Arabia should solve the crisis.
