The State of Qatar has sent two messages to the UN Secretary-General and to the President of the Security Council on a UAE military airliner flying from the airspace of the United Arab Emirates to the Kingdom of Bahrain, violating Qatar’s airspace at 10:10am on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.
In a letter sent by Qatar’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, HE ambassador Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif al-Thani, Permanent Representative of the State of Qatar to the United Nations, drew the attention of the UN Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council to a UAE military airlift carrying induction code (DHC-6) coming from the UAE airspace bound for the Kingdom of Bahrain to enter the airspace of Qatar, at 10:10am, on Wednesday, January 3 2018, flying over the country’s special economic zone, without prior authorisation of the competent Qatari authorities.
HE Sheikha Alia noted that an emergency flight order had been given to a Qatari fighter jet for periodic patrols.
It was later discovered that the UAE aircraft was flying between the air corridor UL-768 and the air corridor UM-600 and then landed in Bahrain at 11:27am.
HE Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif al-Thani stressed that the repetition of this terrible incident and the continuation of the UAE in violation of the sovereignty of Qatar and its threat to the safety of its borders and territories is evidence of the UAE authorities continuing their approach to violating international law, conventions, charters and international norms.
On Thursday, Qatar also sent two identical message to the UN Secretary-General and the President of the UN Security Council regarding an Emirati fighter aircraft coming from the UAE airspace violating Qatar’s airspace on December 21, 2017.
