Qatar Air, Land and Sea Links Closure by Gulf States for ‘Terrorism’ Links Will Hit Supply Chain

MIDDLE EAST – In a move that could devastate trade and stop vital imports into the country, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and the UAE have announced that in response to actions taken by the state of Qatar in ‘supporting terrorist activities and groups’ they are to withdraw diplomatic staff and cut all air, land and sea communications to the tiny peninsular state. Qatar has responded by stating the action is ‘unjustified’. The move is likely to have severe consequences for the country’s supply chain, affecting as it does air freight, and road and sea borne cargo.
