Saudi urged to re­view its af­fairs for own ben­e­fit

Gulf Times - - FRONT PAGE -

HE Sheikh Ha­mad bin Jas­sim bin Ja­bor al-Thani, for­mer prime min­is­ter, yes­ter­day said he hoped Saudi Ara­bia re­viewed the way it han­dled its ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal af­fairs for its own and the re­gion’s ben­e­fit.

“I hope, as I have hoped pre­vi­ously, that the broth­ers in the King­dom of Saudi Ara­bia would re­view the way they deal with their ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal af­fairs in a man­ner gov­erned by wis­dom and re­spon­si­bil­ity. The Gulf coun­tries need Saudi Ara­bia and hope that no harm comes to it as the sta­bil­ity of Saudi Ara­bia is sta­bil­ity for the whole re­gion, though it hopes oth­er­wise to my coun­try,” he said in a tweet.

HE Sheikh Ha­mad posted a series of tweets on the mat­ter.

“Of­fi­cials in Saudi Ara­bia should think calmly about their friends. What I wanted to say... is that the of­fi­cials should hold them­selves ac­count­able be­fore their con­science re­gard­ing what they have gained and what they have lost. Re­turn­ing to rea­son and right is virtue. There should be a way out for the broth­ers’ in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal poli­cies,” he con­tin­ued. “It is not bad for the of­fi­cial to look back at his mis­takes but it is bad to per­sist and con­tinue the mis­takes.

“I do not want the big brother to be black­mailed due to some un­stud­ied poli­cies or poli­cies de­cided in time of anger.

“The man­age­ment of a coun­try dic­tates: do not build with one hand and de­mol­ish with the other.”
