UN aviation agency to assess Gulf airspace closure, host states in Montreal talks

TORONTO, June 14 (Reuters) - The United Nations aviation agency said on Wednesday it was reviewing a request from Qatar to intervene after its Gulf neighbours closed airspace to nation amid the worst diplomatic row in the region in years.

The International Civil Aviation Organization said would host talks of ministers and senior officials from Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt at its Montreal headquarters on Thursday to help find a “consensus-based solution” that addressed “current regional concerns”.
