The United Nations' aviation agency is trying to facilitate talks between Qatar and its neighbors to defuse recent tensions over alleged airspace violations, but won't intervene politically in the dispute, two sources familiar with the matter said this week. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is working to organize a regional meeting for Gulf civil aviation and air traffic authorities in the next few weeks, as part of broader efforts to improve communication, one of the sources said.The council, however, is not planning to intervene in these latest disputes over airspace infringement, said the second source.Improving communication is key because Qatar has limited airspace and is part of Bahrain's Flight Information Region, the first source said.
