Qatar voices readiness to hold talks with Egypt FM

The Qatari foreign ministry said on its Twitter account that it informed the United Nations secretary general and the president of the Security Council that the UAE jet "flew over the exclusive economic zone of Qatar" for one minute.

UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash said on his official Twitter account that Qatar's complaint was untrue.

The State of Qatar has officially filed a complaint at the UN Security Council after an UAE fighter jet violating its airspace previous year, Al Jazeera reported.

The Qatar News Agency said that Qatar filed a complaint to the United Nations stating that a warplane from the UAE penetrated its airspace in December 2017, according to Reuters.

Qatar has denied the charges. "What we see is an escalation and is unjustified", he said.

The QNA report said Qatar's ambassador to the United Nations sent a message to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the president of the Security Council regarding the alleged violation, which it said occurred on December 21 at 9:45 a.m. local time and lasted one minute.

Qatar turned to the WTO in August, insisting it was the victim of an "illegal siege" perpetrated by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which have cut ties with Doha over its links to Iran and accusations that it supports extremists.
