Saudi Arabia is expanding its war against Turkey and converging with...

The American “Bloomberg” agency believed that Saudi Arabia has expanded its war against Turkey, at a time when it is approaching the Assad regime and granting it trade facilities.

The US agency stated that political tensions between regional powers, especially Saudi Arabia and Turkey, are increasingly shifting to trade

The agency quoted officials in Turkish companies that Saudi Arabia is blocking the entry of goods coming from Turkey.

In this context, the Turkish agent of “AP Moller-Maersk A / S” confirmed that shipments from Turkey to Saudi ports are subject to a possible import ban, or a slowdown in customs clearance procedures.

In turn, “Kemal Gul”, owner of “Gulsan Transport”, a logistic company based near Turkey’s southern border with Syria, said that the epidemic gave the Saudi authorities an excuse to restrict the entry of Turkish goods, noting that such cases are with Iran or Iraq.

He added, “It seems to me that they will now hinder maritime transport.” Gul, who is also a board member in the National Transport Union, explained that he receives frequent complaints about this problem from other logistical companies.

The Turkish newspaper “Cumhuriyet” said in a report that the Saudi authorities had imposed on Saudi importers to sign undertakings not to import any goods or products from Turkey, as the decision was unofficial and came within the framework of a popular boycott campaign.

In his response, to these reports, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said yesterday, Thursday, that “Saudi officials have refuted these allegations, but we are waiting to see if the ban will be imposed this month.”

Cavusoglu added, in an interview with the “Anatolia” news agency, that such a ban, if approved, is inconsistent with the laws of the World Trade Organization and international trade law.

This escalation from Saudi Arabia towards Turkey comes at a time when the Assad regime granted trade facilities to alleviate the repercussions of the economic crisis it is suffering.

Director of the Union of International Cargo Shipping Companies in Syria, Najwa Al-Shaar, said that Saudi Arabia decided to grant the Syrian driver a “visa” at the Haditha crossing on the Saudi-Jordanian border, which would allow him to cross Saudi territory to the Gulf countries, making it easier for truck drivers.

“Al-Shaar” added to “Sputnik” that the Syrian truck drivers were not giving entry visas “visas” to neighboring countries, but recently Saudi Arabia issued this decision, which is considered an “achievement”, she said.

Earlier, “Middle East Eye” reported that the Saudi government was pressuring local companies to stop dealing with trade with Turkey, which prompted Turkish Trade Minister “Rohsar Bakjan” to contact the Saudi government; To find out the escalatory move.

According to the site, Saudi Arabia’s war on everything Turkish has reached the point of stopping the import of Turkish goods manufactured in Germany, in addition to terminating Turkish employees’ contracts in the Kingdom.
