Iran is shipping more than 1,000 tonnes of fruits and vegetables to Qatar every day after some Gulf countries led by Saudi Arabia cut relations with Doha, Fars news agency yesterday quoted Mohamed Mehdi Bonchari, director of ports in Iran’s Boushehr province.
Iran began sending food shortly after the Gulf crisis left Qatar without the land transport links it usually relies on to import food, Al Jazeera said. On June 11, Fars quoted the head of Iran’s cattle exporting association as saying that 66 tonnes of beef had been exported to Qatar, with another 90 tonnes expected to follow.
Iran has also flown food to Qatar, AFP adds. Iran’s national airline had told the agency that it had sent five planes of vegetables to Qatar.
