The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its regret over the offensive statements issued by the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, towards the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the countries of the Arab coalition.
In a statement, the Ministry said, "Referring to the abusive statements issued by the Lebanese Minister of Information, regarding the efforts of the countries of the coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its regret for the insults contained in those statements towards the Kingdom and the countries of the coalition which represent a clear bias toward the terrorist Houthi militia that threatens the security and stability of the region.
The ministry reiterated that these statements contradict the simplest political norms and are inconsistent with the historical relations between the two brotherly peoples.
The statement indicated that the ministry summoned, today, the Lebanese ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and handed him an official protest note in this regard.
