The #German ministry of foreign affairs have a few hours left in office. Its about time that he let go of his inner feeling towards Saudi Arabia.

I fail to understand. why the Germans are acting this way. They have a lot to gain, from having a KSA friendly policy.

Someone should remind them, the first rule of diplomacy is, NO EGO.

Some European countries have an attitude toward Saudi Arabia and it is about time that we lower the level of intelligence sharing with Germany. Im actually stunned by this behaviour considering both countries have great relations. Maybe they did not like MBS muscles flexing in the region.(:-)
