Saudi Arabia announced, on Friday, its intention to send urgent “medical, humanitarian and shelter aid” to those affected by the Aegean earthquake in Turkey, at a time of apathy hanging over the relations between the two countries.
A Saudi Foreign Ministry statement said that King Salman bin Abdulaziz directed the King Salman Relief Center to send urgent medical, humanitarian and shelter aid to “those affected by the brothers in Turkey,” as a result of the earthquake that caused great damage to the Turkish state of Izmir.
The statement said that the aid comes from King Salman’s keenness to “stand by the brotherly Turkish people.”
At the end of last October, Saudi stores began removing Turkish products, after Saudi calls to boycott these products.
Turkish exporters of textiles and other goods have complained recently of exaggerated delays in Saudi customs, and early October, the head of the Saudi Chamber of Commerce called for a boycott of goods in response to “the continuing hostility of the Turkish government against the leadership of the Kingdom and its citizens,” according to his description.
After this call, major supermarket chains in Saudi Arabia, including Abdullah Al-Othaim, Tamimi and Banda Markets, announced that they would stop importing and selling Turkish products.
