UAE lodges complaint with U.N. over Qatar war planes

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has lodged a complaint with the UN to say Qatari war planes intercepted its civilian aircraft in an unjustified escalation of a regional dispute, state news agency WAM said on Thursday.

The UAE said on Monday that Qatari air force jets had intercepted two UAE civilian aircraft on routine commercial flights to Bahrain.

Qatar has said the claims are “completely untrue”.

The complaint was in the form of a note submitted to both the UN Security Council president and the General Assembly president.

It said the interception was a threat to the safety of the civil flights a breach to the rules of international law, WAM reported.

The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, has imposed travel, diplomatic and trade sanctions on Qatar since last June, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Qatar denies the charge and has accused the four countries of trying to make it conform to their foreign policy positions.
