Jan ,12 \NewNewss

Qatar has complained to the UN Security Council after the United Arab Emirates violated its airspace; a fighter jet belonging to the UAE entered Qatar’s airspace last December in what Doha has dubbed as a ‘violation’.

In a letter to the secretary-general of the United Nations, the Qatari delegation said a UAE fighter jet entering Qatar’s airspace was a flagrant violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, according to Qatar state news agency.

The letter also stated that the violation was in breach of international law, and took place in the context of “irresponsible and provocative” actions by the UAE against Qatar.

Qatar’s representative to the UN, said that the breach on December 21 last year lasted for one minute at a height of 33,000 feet above Qatar’s exclusive economic zone.
