Qatar pulls all its troops from Djibouti-Eritrea border

In a statement issued by WAM, The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) said that it is fully committed to the Chicago convention, but the state reserves the sovereign right under worldwide law to take any precautionary measures to protect its national security if necessary.

Otaiba said the four nations are seeking a shift in Qatar's behavior through economic and political pressure.

Such measures may involve delays and raise costs for Qatar.

Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar is home to more than 11,000 USA and coalition forces and an important base for the fight against Islamic State militants in the region.

He said that Qatar has "practically been sentenced to the death penalty" and added that "it is neither humane nor Islamic to attempt to isolate a country's people in every area from food, to drink, to travel, to commerce, to worship".

Mr Sharif started his journey back home late on Monday night.

The Foreign Office had denied knowledge of any such visit and has also recently denied foreign media reports of 20,000 Pakistani troops being deployed in Qatar.

Her decision comes in the midst of a major diplomatic crisis in the region, a week after major Gulf nations severed ties with Doha.

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister insists there's no blockade on Qatar and says his country will provide food and medical supplies if needed.

There was no immediate comment from the US.

Zarif said Iranian intelligence believes that the Saudis are "actively engaged" in supporting Sunni militant factions inside Balochistan, the eastern portion of the country, which borders Pakistan. "It's hard to conduct negotiations if you don't really know what everybody wants".

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.

Also last week, Abdul Hadi Al-Hajeri, a special emissary of the Qatari emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, visited Pakistan along with a six member delegation. He denied Doha supported groups like the Muslim Brotherhood that its neighbours oppose, or had warm ties with their enemy Iran. He pointed out a defense accord that the United States and the UAE signed last month would allow Washington send more troops and equipment there.

Saudi Arabia and Bahrain welcomed Trump's demand for Qatar to stop supporting terrorism. The Kremlin said that the row was not helping to unite efforts to try to find a Syria settlement or fight terrorism.
