Qatar Airways calls on United Nations body to declare Qatar measures illegal

Qatar Airways calls on United Nations body to declare Qatar measures illegal”

We know that we might have one or two challenges here and there, but this is a country that is very resilient.

Both Saudi and Qatari officials appear to be seeking support from Ethiopia.

Speaking after meeting Qatari foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Mr Johnson said: "I have been in touch with my counterparts across the region about the current tensions with Qatar".

Qatar Airways Monday called on the UN's aviation body, the International Civil Aviation Organization, to declare the Gulf boycott illegal and a violation of a 1944 convention on international air transport.

The ship had departed from the Omani port of Sohar, with a new itinerary imposed by the decision by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain to severe diplomatic ties.

Qatar can't be allowed to own landmarks and businesses in the U.S. and Europe while using the proceeds to finance extremist groups, the UAE's ambassador to Washington said, as a media war between a Saudi-led alliance and their Gulf neighbour intensifies.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif assured the Saudi monarch that the public and government of Pakistan were committed to protect Harmain Shareefain.

The country shares a land border with Saudi Arabia, and more than half of its food comes from its neighbor, as well as most of its milk.

"Qatar is always open for business.We have what it takes to defend if we have to do anything locally".

Monday, Eritrea expressed support for Saudi Arabia and its allies after they cut ties with Qatar.

Saudi Arabia and Iran have clashed over several issues, including Iran's nuclear program and what Saudis see as Tehran's growing influence in the region - especially in Syria, Lebanon and neighboring Yemen. "Victimising Qatar through smear campaigns serves no objective", he added.

Unfortunately, the rupture in Arab diplomatic relations with Qatar and military alliance suspension raises the stakes for many non-Arab Muslim nations especially Pakistan.

"We in Qatar are prepared to engage in dialogue positively, but in accordance with the worldwide norms and standards that govern any dialogue as per global law", Sheikh Mohammed said.
