Qatar calls on ICAO to resolve Gulf diplomatic dispute

Posted 13 June 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar has appealed to ICAO to intervene in an airspace rights dispute with Saudia Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE as the diplomatic row and trade blockade continues.


According to Reuters Qatar has sent a letter to the UN agency in an effort to resolve the dispute. It is calling on the ICAO council to resolve the conflict under the 1944 Chicago Convention.
The matter is expected to be discussed at ICAO Council by Friday as they are meeting in Montreal this week, Reuters said.
Chief executive of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker told CNN that ICAO should declare the measures against Qatari air traffic to be illegal. "We have legal channels to object to this," he said. "ICAO... should heavily get involved, put their weight behind this to declare this an illegal act."
