Qatar launches complaint against UAE, Bahrain over its airspace violations

Qatar launches complaint against UAE, Bahrain over its airspace violations

Qatar on Saturday filed a complaint with the U.N. Security Council regarding alleged violations of its airspace by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.

On February 26, a Bahraini military plane also illegally entered Qatar's airspace.

The Qatar News Agency said its airspace was violated by a UAE military transport aircraft carrier on January 14 and again on February 25.

This came in a message by the Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Security Council president for March Karel van Oosterom.

The Qatari mission to the United Nations called on the members of the Security Council to take the necessary steps to end the violations, asserting that the Qatari government reserved the right of response and defence, guaranteed by worldwide covenants.

On Friday, Qatar also alleged that a UAE navy vessel had "kidnapped" a Qatari fishing boat at gunpoint and was still holding its eight-strong Indian crew. It strongly condemns and rejects any breach of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and reserves the full right to respond to any violations in line with its sovereign right, in accordance with the provisions of worldwide law.

Along with Bahrain and Egypt, the blockading countries broke off ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting extremists and being too close to Iran, Riyadh's arch-rival.

The message also charged the UAE with full responsibility for the safety and security of the Qatari fishing crew, appealing to the global community to pressure Abu Dhabi to abide by and respect worldwide principles and conventions, release crew members and return the fishing boat and any property held. Qatar's only land border with Saudi Arabia has also been blocked as a result.

Qatar has consistently denied the allegations, accusing the four-nation bloc of infringing on its sovereignty.
