Saudi Arabia to prevent Iraqi refugees from entering kingdom
Saudi Arabia has taken all precautionary measures to prevent Iraqi refugees from entering the kingdom if the United States wages war on Iraq, the Saudi interior minister said in remarks published Wednesday.
Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz said the kingdom has upgraded its readiness at the borders with Iraq and warned no one will be allowed to cross the borders into Saudi Arabia without orders of the kingdom's leadership.
He said Saudi Arabia would not evacuate its citizens from Kuwait in case of war. "Not at all. They will be like their Kuwaiti brothers," the minister said. In the meantime, Saudi troops began a deployment at Al-Salmi on the Kuwaiti-Saudi border on Tuesday. (Albawaba.com)
