[VIDEO]: Courtesy Call from One of the Richest Royalties in the World?
Conference Call or Courtesy Call?
Saudi Foreign Minister H.H. Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud recently paid a courtesy call on President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. This is not at all a common occurrence in the country’s history. People are asking if this is a conference call about the currency reset to gold or just about the migrant workers in Saudi Arabia.
From the President
Marcos shared photos of his meeting with the Saudi foreign minister along with other officials on Facebook. The President thanked the government of Saudi Arabia for its concern for the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in their country. It is not clear that the courtesy call was the same as the conference call for migrant workers.
Lifting of the Deployment Ban
The Philippine government will lift its Saudi deployment ban on November 7, Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Secretary Susan Ople said. She has reached an agreement with Saudi Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Ahmad Bin Sulaiman Al-Rajhi. Is the Al Saud royalty’s private meeting with the President separate from the meeting with Ople?
