Saudi Foreign Minister Gives PM Mock Cheque
ISTANBUL: Last night in a carefully orchestrated ceremony, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir not only confirmed the US$680million donation to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak came from Saudi Arabia, he delighted the assembled press by commemorating the transaction with a ceremonial mock cheque.
“This proves once and for all the US$680 million donation our Minister mistook for an investment in February, and HRH Prince Saud Abdulaziz Al-Saud said was only US$375 million in his 2011 letter, is indeed genuine.”
A Saudi official attending the OIC praised the mock donor cheque ceremony.
“If giving measly RM10 mock cheques to 9-year-old Malaysian cyclists builds character, imagine what our $680mil one will do to restore the PM’s?”
