Qatar Removed from UAE Museum World Map as Tensions Escalate

Qatar Blames Saudi-led Regimes for Waging Economic Warfare

Alwaght- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has omitted Qatar from a world map exhibited at a recently opened Louvre museum in Abu Dhabi amid rising tensions between the two Persian Gulf monarchies.

In an analysis piece written earlier this week entitled “The UAE/Qatar rivalry is escalating”, the Washington Institute’s Simon Henderson noted that a large map of the world featured at the museum “completely omits” the nation of Qatar.

“In the children's section of Abu Dhabi's new flagship Louvre Museum, a map of the southern Persian Gulf completely omits the Qatari peninsula -- a geographical deletion that is probably incompatible with France's agreement to let Abu Dhabi use the Louvre's name,” Henderson wrote.

Last year, the UAE paid France’s iconic Louvre Museum a whopping $520 million for the use of its name in its own Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum, which finally opened its doors last November after a five-year delay.

The “geographical omission” noted by Henderson comes amid mounting tension between the two oil-rich Persian Gulf states.

Last week, Qatar formally accused the UAE of having flown military aircraft over its territory last month in what it described as a violation of its sovereign airspace -- a claim denied by Abu Dhabi.

This week, the UAE responded in kind, alleging that Qatari jet fighters had “intercepted” two Emirati civilian aircraft as they flew towards Bahrain, drawing similar denials from Doha.

Last summer, the UAE -- along with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain -- abruptly severed ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorist groups in the region.

Qatar, for its part, vehemently denies the allegations, describing attempts to isolate it by its fellow Arab states as a violation of international law.

Early June last year, Saudi-led regimes severed relations with Qatar and imposed a blockade against it, accusing Doha of funding "extremism". Qatar has vehemently rejected the allegations as "baseless".

On June 22, the block, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, issued a 13-point list of demands, including the shutdown of Al Jazeera TV, limiting ties with Iran, and expelling Turkish troops stationed in the country as a prerequisite to lifting the blockade.

Qatar rejected all the demands, denouncing them as attempts to violate its sovereignty.
