A second United Arab Emirates military jet has violated Qatar's airspace, the Gulf state said on Saturday, prompting Doha to send a new complaint to the United Nations.

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".

One day after Qatar's complaint to the UN Security Council, the UAE denied on Friday that it has violated its neighbour's airspace, ThenewKhalij.org has reported.

Sheikha Alia Ahmed bin Saif al-Thani described the incident as an evidence that shows UAE authorities seek to continue their approach to violate global law, conventions, charters and worldwide norms.

"[The] threat to the safety of its [Qatar's] borders and territories is evidence of the UAE authorities continuing their approach to violating worldwide law, conventions, charters and global norms", it added.
