The "blockade" and the “blockade states" are words that Qatar continue to employ to seek international sympathy since the flare-up of the crisis with neighboring countries five weeks ago.

But those following up on Qatar’s trade will be aware that it didn’t suffer from any "blockade" with cows and goods being transported by sea and air from Turkey and Iran, reported Al Arabiya.


The Turkish Economy Minister confirmed that his country delivered 197 cargo planes and one ship to Qatar packed with goods.

The Qatari statements confirmed this position as well, as the Minister of Economy of Qatar stated that trade is going on normally!

Up to four thousand cows, flew from Germany to Qatar, in an attempt to replace dairy products and milk that used to come from Saudi Arabia.

Iran assured Qatar that it would continue to cover any shortages in its markets with Iranian products.

This makes the use of the word blockade a "wrong" term to describe the impact of the four countries’ boycott of Qatar, but that does not mean that the Qatari economy is not affected.

The cost of shipping has increased ten times, Qatar's foreign minister said.

The Qatari riyal has suffered severe blows from its low rates outside of Qatar, and the refusal to deal with in some banks and exchange stations.

The boycott also cast a shadow over Qatar's credit rating and deteriorating banking challenges.

Qatar has to deal with rapid economic challenges following its insistence on deviation but the blockade is certainly not part of it, thanks to Iran and Turkey.
