Denial of Saudi "recruitment" of Yemeni spy

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has categorically denied reports circulated by certain foreign news agencies concerning an alleged confession by a person in custody in the Republic of Yemen that he had been recruited by, and had been working for, Saudi security forces. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia takes this opportunity to reiterate the depth of existing Saudi-Yemeni relations and to regret the circulation of such biased reports.
