Saudi restores ambassador to Sweden News

Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf confirmed to Saudi Arabia’s King Salman the strength and resilience of relations between the two countries.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofen apologized for any interpretations which may have caused offense to Saudi Arabia or Islam, adding that he hoped Riyadh would realize Stockholm’s genuine concern over relations, Al Arabiya reported.

Saudi Arabia withdrew its envoy earlier this month over Swedish criticism of the monarchy’s laws which was considered by Riyadh an intervention in its internal affairs.
