Qatar asks UN body to resolve Gulf airspace row

Qatar asks UN body to resolve Gulf airspace row

Qatar has denied the allegations.

Pakistani TV showed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and General Qamar Javed Bajwa arriving in Riyadh on June 6.

Senior security adviser, Mutlaq al-Qahtani, also a special envoy to the Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, told Al-Jazeera the week-long blockade of Qatar would never work in the long term.

The Eritrean Information Ministry's statement of support on Monday came despite its previously close ties with energy-rich Qatar.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized Monday the sanctions imposed against Qatar, describing them as inhumane and non-Islamic, and calling on Gulf and Arab countries to solve the issue.

The president said it appears some countries have already made a decision to hand down the death penalty to Qatar and urged Saudi Arabia to reconsider the harsh steps against the small Gulf country.

"The pilgrims from Qatar are in the hearts of their Saudi brethren from when they enter the Kingdom until their departure", SPA said, quoting the official body in charge of Mecca and Medina, Islam's two holiest sites.

He was also dismissive of a terror blacklist published by the Gulf allies last week which named various Qataris and Qatar-based organisations.

Saudi Arabia has closed the Qatari peninsula's only land border, threatening imports of both fresh food and raw materials needed to complete a Dollars 200 billion infrastructure project for the 2022 football World Cup. But Qatar wields a potential economic weapon if the crisis escalates and countries around the world that depend on its supply may find themselves needing to side with the tiny nation that is home to a major US military installation.

In a separate interview with the Wall Street Journal, Al Baker said he would not delay any plane orders or put expansion plans in other countries, such as India, on hold.

During the meeting, they disclosed procedures and steps taken by the three states to sever diplomatic and consular relations with Qatar in light of the three states' commitment to combat terrorism, dry up sources of funding terrorism and counter extremism, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

With Saudi shutting the land border, families living in either sides will be having tough time to cross the border to meet each other.

The coordinated move dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar's support of the Muslim Brotherhood, the world's oldest Islamist movement, and adds accusations that Doha even backs the agenda of regional arch-rival Iran.

The UAE had for decades served as a central stopping point in cargo shipments.
