Qatar Airways CEO: UN body should call Qatar measures illegal

"We're not going to specify the nature of those conversations".

The Eritrean Information Ministry's statement of support on Monday came despite its previously close ties with energy-rich Qatar.

Trump on Sunday accused Qatar of bankrolling extremists, throwing his weight behind Saudi Arabia and its allies in the worst crisis to grip the Gulf in years.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar al-Baker acknowledged the measures in a statement in the company's annual fiscal report.

Qatar Airways has made Doha a global hub in just a few years, but industry analysts say banning it from Gulf states' airspace could threaten its position as a major transcontinental carrier. Al Thani has visited multiple European countries in recent days seeking diplomatic support.

Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Adivser to PM on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan's envoy to SA Khan Hasham and other officials are accompanying the premier during the visit. Saudi Arabia also sealed Qatar's only land border, a key passageway for food imports.

Iran also has shipped in vegetables by air and plans to send some 350 tons of fruit by sea to Qatar, with which it shares a massive offshore natural gas field.

The overflight blockade violates International Civil Aviation Organization rules, and Qatar Airways will use "legal channels to object to this", Al Baker told CNN, adding that he has no intention to "shrink" the airline in the face of growing headwinds.

Qatar Airways offices were closed in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Trump's legal team to file complaint with DOJ about Comey leak
Both Collins and Feinstein said they would support the issuing of a subpoena to gain access to any recordings of Trump and Comey . He further confirmed that he saw her secretive meeting with former President Bill Clinton as a conflict of interest.

He said Pakistan should approach the Gulf countries with the request to show restraint and resolve their differences through negotiations.

"I am also concerned by some of the strong actions which Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain have taken against an important partner, and urge them to ease the blockade on Qatar".

Qatar strongly rejects the allegations and has said it is open to talks on ending the dispute.

Doha has said the severing of trade and transport ties are hurting the country's inhabitants.

Some of the Gulf states severed transit links and gave Qatari visitors and residents two weeks to leave their countries.

It said the country has been leading the region in attacking what it called the roots of "terrorism", including giving young people hope through jobs, educating hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and funding community programmes to challenge agendas of armed groups.

Qatar said Monday it launched new cargo shipping routes through ports in Oman.

Qatar's Hamad Port is 420 nautical miles from Sohar Port and 1,131 nautical miles from Salalah.

The new flights have increased Iranian air traffic by 17 per cent, the official state news agency has reported.
