DUBAI: The UAE has denied Qatar's accusation that an Emirati fighter jet had violated its airspace and dismissed the move as unjustified and an escalation.
 
 
UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, said on his official Twitter account that Qatar's complaint was untrue.
 
"The Qatari complaint about the Emirati violation of its airspace is untrue and confused," Gargash said on Twitter.
"We are working on responding to that officially with proof and evidence," he said. "We see this as an escalation and (it) is unjustified, and what used to happen behind the scenes is now uncovered."
 
The Qatari foreign ministry said on its Twitter account that it informed the UN secretary general and the president of the Security Council that the UAE jet "flew over the exclusive economic zone of Qatar" for one minute.
 
The ministry said "that the UAE plane entered the airspace of the State of Qatar without prior knowledge or approval of the competent Qatari authorities."
