Qatar says it has pulled all its troops from the border of Djibouti and Eritrea, two East African nations who have a long-running dispute over the territory.

The Gulf state, which imported vast majority of its food from Gulf Arab neighbours before the diplomatic shutdown, has been cooperating with Iran and Turkey to secure food and water.

The Turkish army said in a statement that a three-person Turkish military delegation was now in Qatar to carry out preparation work for the deployment of troops in the future.

The airspace closure was to protect the country and its citizens from anything it sees as a threat and as a precautionary measure, Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation said in a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency. "The last time we had some skirmishes".

Nawaz Sharif government has been cautioned of getting embroiled in the Middle East conflict and suggested to immediately end its involvement in the Saudi-led Islamic Military alliance, Dawn, a leading Pakistani newspaper said in its editorial on Tuesday.

Qatar has withdrawn its troops from the border between Djibouti and Eritrea, where the Gulf state has been acting as mediator in a border dispute, the Qatari Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab EmiratesBahrain and Egypt are among several countries that suspended ties with Qatar last week, including the suspension of all flights to and from Dohaand an airspace ban on Qatar Airways.

However, Sarfraz Ahmed felt rather disappointed knowing that only English speaking reporters were present at the press conference. Sarfraz rescued Pakistan from the position of 162/7 while chasing 237, to set up a semi-final date against England .

Qatar denies accusations that it supports Islamist militants and Shi'ite Iran, arch regional foe of the Sunni Gulf Arab monarchies.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights chief said Wednesday he is "alarmed about the possible impact" of a diplomatic rift in the Persian Gulf on people's lives.

Saudi Arabia also re-ignited tensions over Doha's alleged support for Iran, which has been at odds with Saudi Arabia.

But speaking in Washington, the Saudi foreign minister said that there was no blockade on Qatar.

Meseret reported from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

I'm "taking this opportunity to request this top donor group to use your leverage, to use your influence.to ensure that pledges are turned into commitments", Vigoda said.
