Saudi Arabia reinstated its ambassador to Sweden on Friday after the European country apologized for the recent crisis with the kingdom, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf confirmed to Saudi Arabia’s King Salman the strength and resilience of relations between the two countries.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofen apologized for any interpretations which may have caused offense to Saudi Arabia or Islam, adding that he hoped Riyadh would realize Stockholm’s genuine concern over relations, Al Arabiya reported.

Saudi Arabia withdrew its envoy earlier this month over Swedish criticism of the monarchy’s laws which was considered by Riyadh an intervention in its internal affairs.

Sweden dosen't want to be thrown out by the Arabs as it share economic ties with them. Good to Sweden acting maturely.
