EgyptAir facilitates Egyptian workers’ repatriation from Doha

CAIRO - 12 July 2018: EgyptAir launched six direct flights to Kuwait, Lebanon, and Jordan on Wednesday to facilitate the return of Egyptian employees to their homeland from Doha.

In order to facilitate the return of the deported workers through Kuwait, EgyptAir operated additional flights to Kuwait after the suspension of Cairo-Doha flights as part of a complete boycott imposed on the tiny emirate of Qatar since June 5, 2017.

In its bid to resolve the current diplomatic rift between the Gulf nations and Doha, Kuwait acts as a mediator between the two sides. Along with Oman, Kuwait has taken a neutral position in the dispute.

On June 5, a number of Gulf States, along with Egypt, announced severing diplomatic relations with the Gulf state of Qatar over its support of terrorism and close relations with the extremist government of Iran.

Following the Arab boycott of Doha, a list of 13-demands was handed to Doha’s government by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain for reconciliation, which includes the closing of Al-Jazeera broadcasting, and the suspension of its relationship with the extremist government of Iran.

Since then, Qatar has resisted conciliation attempts and has not shown any effort in disassociating itself from the terrorist groups that the quartet claims are harbored and financially supported by Doha.
