The Dutch trade mission to Saudi Arabia in december, definitely not. Minister of Foreign Trade, Sigrid Kaag shun the country because of the killing of the critical journalist Jamal Khashoggi, says prime minister Mark Rutte.
The business was already on loose screws, because Saudi Arabia no disclosure to give about what Khashoggi, the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is to happen. The cabinet had last week already know that ‘not the reason’ was that People would travel. Now Khashoggi indeed shows killed, the mission is permanently cancelled.
Kaag would Saudi Arabia visit from 9 to 12 december, with a large delegation of the business community in its result. Last week, said minister of Finance Wopke Hoekstra also been off for a investeerdersconferentie in Riyadh, like many of the other high-level participants from different countries. Germany suspended even though the arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia.
