Qatar escalates UAE trade dispute, asks WTO to adjudicate
Qatar has asked the World Trade Organization to set up a dispute panel to adjudicate on its row with the United Arab Emirates, Qatar said in a document published by the WTO on Thursday, escalating a trade complaint it lodged with the WTO in July.

 

The initial complaint, which also included Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, triggered a 60-day window to settle the issue in talks. But the UAE had refused to take part in talks, the Qatari submission to the WTO said.
