Iran’s exports to Qatar have been partially suspended after Iranian merchants drowned Qatari markets with rotten products and goods and after fraud, embezzlement and theft increased.
Reza Badiefard, the director of the Shiraz Airport, the center of Fars province, said on Sunday that exports were partially suspended because shipped products to Qatar, like fruits and vegetables, were not packaged right as vegetables stored in cartons had soil on them, IRNA reported.
Badiefard added that the authorities suspended shipping operations which he described as “fraud” and warned that Iran may lose the Qatari market.
IRNA also said that the Qatari health ministry said fruits exported from Iran are ripened through chemicals, adding that some products are shipped via civil aviation without imposing any supervision whatsoever.
