Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Tuesday congratulated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the occasion of his re-election.

“On this occasion, the king praised the brotherly relations between the two countries and the two brotherly peoples, and which all seek to strengthen and develop in all fields,” a Saudi Press Agency statement said.

Erdogan -- who has dominated Turkey's politics for the last decade and a half -- on Monday won five more years in office with sweeping new powers after a decisive election victory.
