A Saudi official has defamed a Kuwaiti minister Khalid Al-Roudhan for his Qatar visit and meeting with the Emir. Turki Al-Sheikh, Chairman of the General Sports Authority and Advisor in the Saudi Royal Court, tweeted his frustration against Kuwaiti minister’s trip to Qatar.
Al Sheikh wrote in his tweet: (auto-translated from Arabic) “Al-Roudan, in short, is mercenaries under the umbrella of positions and against proven facts. This mercenary will not harm Saudi Arabia’s historical relations with its sister Kuwait, and what he said represents himself only, as Modar poet said: If you want to know the souls, toss them money”
The tweet was made after the Kuwaiti minister thanked Qatari emir for his support during FIFA’s ban on Kuwait Football Association. The delegation headed by the minister also thanked Qatar for agreeing to move the 23rd Gulf Cup to Kuwait.
Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti social media users criticized the Saudi official for remarks against their minister.
“Khalid Al-Roudan is a minister and his father was a minister and his grandfather was a minister, and from a well-known wealthy family in Kuwait, before Saudi Arabia was established, and he is not a mercenary as you said,” Abdullah Jahlan from Kuwait said in his tweet.
