RIYADH -- Saudi Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that it won't allow Turkey to establish military bases on its land.

A source from the ministry tweeted that Saudi Arabia doesn't need such bases as its military forces and competency are one of the best, and the country has been involved in various foreign military assistances to fight terrorism and protect regional security.

The announcement was made after a meeting between Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Jeddah on Friday to discuss regional issues, especially the decisions of Saudi-led pan-Arab countries to sever diplomatic ties with Qatar.
