#ICYMI : "By calling an extraordinary Leaders’ Summit on March 26 to address the consequences of the #pandemic , Saudi Arabia rose to the gravity of the global health crisis, " French Ambassador@ludovic_pouille writes in Arab News. #G20 @g20org
In an interview with Arab News, Japan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Tsukasa Uemura, said the #G20 under the Saudi presidency this year "will be remembered as a milestone for humanity in addressing the global health crisis with wisdom" @JapanEmbassyKSA
I asked the Saudi ambassador to the UN why he supports democracy in Syria but not in Saudi Arabia - @AJUpFront clip:
We should only sell arms to those we absolutely trust. At this point in time, we can’t trust Saudi Arabia. It’s now time to suspend arms sales. The Senate will soon act on this. They should also immediately replace their ambassador to the US. Change is coming!
Expelling Saudi Ambassador, as suggested, is a good beginning—a first step that must be followed by more: No arms sales, refueling & other military support. Other steps—including against top Saudi rulers—should be determined by a full international investigation.
Corker said he spoke w Saudi ambassador about missing journalist. “It was not, not a great conversation in that I asked him for the videotape showing him leaving. He shared with me that they only livestream their tapes. I’ve never heard of an embassy in my life that doesn’t tape”
