Adel Al Jubeir calls on Saudi Arabia’s accusers in Bezos phone hack to ‘acknowledge their mistake’

Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir.

Saudi Arabia’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs; Adel Al Jubeir; called Saturday on those who “accused the Kingdom” of being involved in the hacking of Amazon boss Jeff Bezos’ phone last year; to “acknowledge their mistake.”

Al Jubeir asked on his Twitter account; “Now that the truth that “the Kingdom had nothing to do with the allegations” had been revealed; whether people would “simply delete their tweets” and “hope that their positions at the time disappear into the sunset?”

Reports in January 2020 claimed hacking Amazon billionaire Bezos’ phone; after receiving a WhatsApp message sent from the personal account of the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia’s embassy in the US rejected the claims at the time as “absurd;” while Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said the allegations were “absolutely silly”; while speaking to Reuters at last year’s World Economic Forum in Davos.
