Prince Bandar calls ABC News report “Untrue”

His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, today called an ABC News report posted on its website claiming that  “the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has recently transmitted a secret proposal to the Bush administration, using one of his own sons, Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah as an emissary, rather than officials from the Saudi Embassy in Washington,” untrue.  Prince Bandar added that Prince Abdulaziz has not been in the United States for some time and has not carried any message to the President or other U.S. government officials.
