Qatar lodges complaint with WTO

|By:, SA News Editor

Qatar has lodged a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization against the "illegal siege" imposed by four Arab neighbors that have accused the Gulf state of sponsoring terrorism.

By formally "requesting consultations," Qatar triggered a 60-day deadline for the countries to settle the complaint, or face litigation at the WTO and potential retaliatory trade sanctions.
