Trade exchange between Saudi Arabia and Turkey reaches $ 6.3 billion annually (Getty)

The head of the Council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce Ajlan Al-Ajlan called for a boycott of Turkish products, amid reports from traders that differences between Ankara and Riyadh disrupted the flow of goods between the two regional powers.

Al-Ajlan, a businessman, wrote on Twitter that “boycotting everything that is Turkish, whether at the level of import, investment or tourism, is the responsibility of every Saudi ‘merchant and consumer’, in response to the continuing hostility of the Turkish government against our leadership, our country and our citizens.”

The Council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce is a non-governmental body that includes businessmen from the private sector.

Last Thursday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that his country stands against the killers of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and not against the Saudi administration and people.

In response to rumors of Saudi Arabia’s ban on Turkish products, he added that he heard such news, but it was not confirmed, noting that Saudi officials refuted these allegations, stressing that “we are waiting to see if the ban will be imposed during the current month.”

He added that “such a ban, if approved, does not comply with the laws of the World Trade Organization and international trade law.”

The agency “Bloomberg” reported in a report published on Friday that the Turkish agent of “AP Moller-Maersk A / S” said in an email sent on September 29 that goods destined for Saudi ports “will be subject to a possible ban on Imports or slowing down customs traffic. ”

The owner of the “Gulsan Transport” logistics company whose headquarters is located near Turkey’s border with Syria, Kemal Gul, said that the passage of goods transported by land has been prevented, expecting that “they – the Saudis – will hinder sea transport now.”

The Turkish opposition newspaper, Cumhuriyat, confirmed in late September that Saudi Arabia will prevent Turkish goods from entering its lands, starting from the beginning of this October.

Trade exchange between Saudi Arabia and Turkey amounts to about $ 6.3 billion annually, including Turkish exports about $ 3 billion and imports from Saudi Arabia worth $ 3 billion.
