The World Trade Organisation on Tuesday dropped five charges filed by Qatar against Saudi Arabia, considering them as baseless allegations.

The WTO dispute settlement panel dropped the charges after examining all the documents provided by the Kingdom about Qatar’s policies that rebuffed its proofless claims.

‘The WTO arbitrators did not accept Qatar’s view as Saudi Arabia severed its ties with Qatar due to its interference in internal affairs of other countries,’ WTO said in a statement.

The organisation also said that the Kingdom boycott its ties with Qatar because of Doha’s link to terrorism, refusing to halt its support for terrorism, as well as dishonour of agreements.

“Saudi Arabia had to take measures against Qatar in order to safeguard its security, and hence its position toward Doha is justified to protect its security interests,” WTO added.

Saudi permanent representative at WTO in Geneva said: “The real dispute with Qatar is related to GCC’s security interests.”

He revealed that the real dispute before the WTO Dispute Settlement Body is related to the Kingdom’s security interests and not related to the WTO obligations.
