Kingdom refutes remarks made by Prince Waleed

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has commented that the remarks made recently in Lebanon by Prince Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz represent his own personal opinion and do not reflect the position of the Saudi government and people. Prince Waleed, moreover, does not hold any official position. As for the open letter directed to Crown Prince Abdullah by the Lebanese University League of Graduates, the Kingdom never interferes in the affairs of any other country and will never do so, considering such action to be interference in that country’s sovereignty and independence; Saudi Arabia nevertheless has never ceased and will never cease its support for the brotherly Lebanese people in all fields.
