Qatar opens new shipping routes via Oman amidst Gulf ban

Malita Javier | 20 Junio, 2017, 11:28

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reiterated his country's position to support Qatar and diplomatic engagement to help end the crisis in a speech to party members on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain announced on May 5 they were cutting diplomatic ties and closing all connectivity links with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Violence has increased in recent weeks between militants and Saudi security forces in a predominantly Shiite town in the country's east. Saudi Arabia has also accused Qatar of backing Iranian-allied rebels in Yemen, known as Houthis.

Qatar said Monday, June 12, 2017, that it had begun shipping cargo through Oman to bypass Gulf countries that have cut off sea and land routes to the tiny, energy-rich nation, the latest move by Doha to show it can survive a diplomatic dispute with its neighbors.

"Mwani Qatar assures that business continues to progress at all its ports and our partners have added new services from around the world".

Vladimir Putin met Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Tuesday, following a meeting with Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdelrahman Al Thani over the weekend.

Officials in Doha say an alleged hack of the state-run Qatar News Agency in late May saw controversial comments attributed to its ruling emir published.

He denied that Qatar supported groups like the Muslim Brotherhood that its neighbours oppose, or had warm ties with their enemy Iran.

The three countries' aviation authorities also said that non-Qatari private and chartered flights from Qatar must submit requests to them at least 24 hours before crossing the airspace.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Erdogan would discuss the Gulf rift in a telephone call with U.S. President Donald Trump in coming days, but gave no specific time.

So far, the measures do not seem to have caused a serious shortages of supplies in shops. Most likely, Qatar will make some concessions to return to the fold.
