DUBAI, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has formally concluded World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute proceedings over trade violations by Qatar after the latter withdrew its discriminatory measures, official WAM news agency reported Thursday.

Qatar's discriminatory measures against goods and distributors originating from the UAE, imposed in May and June 2018, run against its obligations and commitments as a member of the WTO, WAM said.

On Jan. 28, the UAE asked for the formation of a WTO dispute settlement panel against Qatar to seek the withdrawal of discriminatory measures.

On March 31, Qatar withdrew the measures in question before the UAE notified the WTO of its willingness to conclude proceedings against Qatar.

"Qatar's withdrawal fulfilled the UAE's request in the complaint. However, the UAE reserves the right to take further action if Qatar renews its WTO violations," WAM quoted a spokesperson for the UAE mission in Geneva as saying. Enditem
