Riyadh denies holding a meeting between the Saudi Minister of Commerce and an Israeli official

On Monday evening, Riyadh denied “allegations circulating on social media platforms that a meeting was held between Saudi Trade Minister Majid Al-Qasabi and an Israeli official.”


This came according to what was reported by the Saudi News Agency (SPA) from an unnamed official source.


The Saudi comment came in response to a video clip circulating on social media platforms about the Minister of Commerce, Majid bin Abdullah Al-Qasabi, meeting with an Israeli official, according to SPA.


The source explained that the video was while Al-Qasabi was standing with the Nigerian Minister of Commerce prior to the opening of the 13th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization in the Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi.


He added, "A person approached the Saudi minister and then introduced himself as the Minister of Economy in the Israeli government without prior knowledge of the person's identity."


The source affirmed "the Kingdom's firm position on the Palestinian issue, and its support for the steadfastness of the Palestinian people against the Israeli aggression."
