Qatar took a serious step against Bahrain
Qatar has reported to the UN Security Council and UN secretary general a breach of its sovereignty by Bahrain.
In a message addressed by Ambassador Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif Al-Thani, Qatar’s permanent representative to the United Nations, to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Karel van Oosterom, the president of the UN Security Council for this month, she mentioned that a Bahraini fighter jet has violated the airspace of Qatar on Sunday, March 25.
The message described the incident as a serious breach that constitutes a serious and flagrant violation of international law, noting that repeated violations of Qatari sovereignty would increase tension in the region without regard to its security and stability.
The government of Qatar renewed its call on the United Nations to take the necessary measures under the charter in order to maintain international peace and security and put an end to repeated Bahraini violations.
While the message highlighted that Qatar has continued its policy of restraint towards irresponsible and provocative practices, it stressed that Qatar strongly condemns any violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and that it reserves the right to respond to any violations and will not hesitate to take the necessary measures to protect its sovereignty and defend its borders, airspace, territorial waters and national security in line with international laws and regulations.
