    Qatar row: Saudi revokes Qatar Airways' licence.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 06 Jun 2017, 11:45 am

    Saudi Arabia's aviation authority has formally withdrawn Qatar's licence to land and fly in the country.

    Saudi's General Authority of Civil Aviation also ordered its offices to be closed within 48 hours.

    In a statement, the authority also said licences granted to Qatar Airways' employees would be withdrawn.

    Saudi Arabia and several other countries have cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism in the Gulf region.

    Other neighbours, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have closed their airspace to Qatari planes.

    I don't know about you guys, but I see this a bit like "the pot calling the kettle black".

    OK, we do have good relations - at the moment - with, and sell arms to, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but both of these countries have supported terrorism in the past. In fact Osama Bin-Laden came from a large and rich Saudi family, who still live happily there.

    Opinions anybody ?

    I don't know if we can trust any of the Middle-Eastern countries, as they are almost all either in the grip of a royal family or they are ruled by Sharia law.

    The only country in the Middle-East that tries to be secular is Turkey and there are a lot of important Muslims in and around that country.

    Very true Zath' as almost all of the middle-east states are either under the heel of Sharia law or they are completely controlled by the royal families there.
