Saudi Finance Ministry Denies Threat to Sell European Bonds


The Saudi Ministry of Finance has denied reports that the Kingdom threatened to sell European bonds, emphasizing that its relationships with the G7 and other countries are based on mutual respect.

Bloomberg quoted a ministry statement asserting that no threats were made, and emphasized the ongoing discussion of all issues that promote global growth and the resilience of the international financial system.
