“We did not engage in such behavior at all. This is not how we operate and that’s not how we did (it) in the past,” Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh.

“The story is still not complete. So let’s wait and find out what happened before we jump to conclusions.”
