Saudi cancels Czech forum over anti-Islam bias
Saudi Arabia is cancelling a scheduled Czech-Saudi forum and suspending the participation of any Saudi from the public or private sectors in its activities in protest against anti-Islam statements and stances by officials in the Czech Republic.
The cancellation and suspension were issued in an order by King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud to the Saudi foreign ministry, local daily Al Watan reported on Wednesday.
Sources said the Council of Saudi Chambers had received directives from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry not to hold the forum.
