Saudi King Condemns Egypt Protesters, Warns for Instability
Saudi Arabia’s king condemned protesters in Egypt on Saturday as “infiltrators and looters” seeking to destabilize their country.
King Abdullah Ibn Abdulaziz Al Saud called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and “was reassured” about the situation in Egypt, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported.
Mubarak assured the Saudi king “that the situation is stable” and that the protests “are merely attempts of groups who do not want stability and security for the people of Egypt, but rather they seek to achieve strange and suspicious objectives,” the report said.
Mubarak added that Egypt will “deter anyone who tries to exploit the freedom of (the) Egyptian people and will not allow anyone to lure those groups or use them to achieve suspicious and strange agendas,” the news agency said. [CNN, Sat, Jan 29, 2011]

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah Ibn Abdulaziz Al Saud, made a telephone call on Saturday morning to Egyptian President Mohammed Hosni Mubarak, during which the King was reassured about the situations in Egypt.
During the call, the King said, ‘Egypt is a country of Arabism and Islam. No Arab and Muslim human being can bear that some infiltrators, in the name of freedom of expression, have infiltrated into the brotherly people of Egypt, to destabilize its security and stability and they have been exploited to spew out their hatred in destruction, intimidation, burning, looting and inciting a malicious sedition”.
The Government of Saudi Arabia and people condemns strongly this and stands with all its potentials by the Government and brotherly people of Egypt.
The King prayed to Allah Almighty to preserve Egypt, its people, stability and unity to continue its historic role with its Arab brothers and Muslims.
On his part, the Egyptian President reassured the King that the situation is stable and what have been seen by the world are merely attempts of groups who do not want stability and security for the people of Egypt, but rather they seek to achieve strange and suspicious objectives, stressing that Egypt and its people are determined to deter any one who tries to exploit the freedom of Egyptian people and will not allow anyone to lure those groups or use them to achieve suspicious and strange agendas.
