Qatar, UAE clash over airspace violation

Qatar, UAE clash over airspace violation

The State of Qatar has officially filed a complaint at the UN Security Council after an UAE fighter jet violating its airspace a year ago, Al Jazeera reported.

Qatar, which has faced a boycott by Arab states including the UAE since last June, said it had lodged a protest at the United Nations about the violation which allegedly took place on December 21.

Al Thani said that Qatar would take all necessary measures required to defend its borders, airspace and national security in order to preserve its legitimate sovereign right in accordance with worldwide laws if such violations were repeated.

The letter also stated that the violation was in breach of worldwide law, and took place in the context of "irresponsible and provocative" actions by the UAE against Qatar.

The Abu Dhabi-based official described on Twitter the Qatar's claim as "confusing", adding the UAE's authorities are working to respond to it officially with evidence. "Everything that used to happen under the table is now in the open", he continued.

Qatar turned to the WTO in August, insisting it was the victim of an "illegal siege" perpetrated by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which have cut ties with Doha over its links to Iran and accusations that it supports extremists.

Qatar denies the allegations, arguing the bloc aims to incite regime change in Doha.
