Kingdom refutes report of bugging during State visit to Pakistan

Saudi Arabia today refuted a report that recently appeared in the 'Times of India' and the 'South Asia Tribune' alleging that Pakistani intelligence had bugged the suite of Deputy Prime Minister and Commander of the National Guard Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz during his state visit to Islamabad. Such a report, the statement said, is aimed at disrupting the historical relations between the Kingdom and the brotherly country of Pakistan, which are based on the stable principles of creed, ethics, principles and transparency. Saudi Arabia reaffirms that its trust in its brothers in Pakistan is greater than any attempt to harm it.
