Saudi Arabia: Maritime Crisis and Apologies

Saudi blogger Yazeez finds the mounting crisis on the British sailors captured by Iran as “ridiculous.” “Iran wants an apology, which is very justifiable considering the fact that what the sailors did was technically an ‘invasion’,” he writes.


  • Amira,
    I am a little confused with the title of the post.
    “Saudi Arabia: Apologise to Iran”
    I, although a Saudi citizen, no way represent Saudi or the view in the streets of Saudi.
    I feel the title of the post is very misleading.

  • Dear Yazeez,
    Point taken and the title has been amended! Sorry if this has caused you any inconvenience!
