Saudi FM says relations with Turkey ‘good and amicable’


Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said Saturday that relations with Turkey as “good and amicable,” according to a statement cited by Reuters.

The foreign minister, whose country is hosting the G20 summit in which Turkey attended, denied any form of informal boycott of Turkish products, Anadolu reports.

Demands to boycott Turkish products surfaced by Saudi and Emirati social media activists in October. However, such calls had less impact on Turkish products.

Closer to home, he confirmed Saudi Arabia continues to seek a solution to the dispute with Qatar, although, he stressed that an answer must “address legitimate security concerns.”

In 2017, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed a land, sea and air blockade, with the four states accusing Doha of supporting terrorist groups, an accusation vociferously denied by Qatar.
