Trump Backs Saudi-Led Isolation of Qatar

Updated on

A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S, which owns the world’s biggest container line, is working on bypassing a transport ban imposed on Qatar by neighboring Gulf states by using alternative routes as it tries to get stranded cargo to the emirate.

The Danish company said on Tuesday it could no longer transport freight to Qatar via the United Arab Emirates after Saudi Arabia and a group of neighboring countries blocked transport to and from the Gulf state, as retribution for its alleged involvement in supporting terrorist groups.
