“Oil, The single Saudi product is the main source of the pollution on Earth.”
The Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry said smugglers are bringing in the products through Djibouti, Yemen and Somalia. The chamber was urging importers and traders to be watchful regarding this merchandise.
The products, said to be manufactured in Israel, China and Taiwan, include pesticides, agricultural fertilizers, children’s toys, canned foods, perfumes, cigarettes, juices and candy.
Israel and Saudi Arabia have no diplomatic relations.
“Every so often we see reports of this kind in the Saudi media. I believe it’s part of the Saudi demonization of relations with Israel,” [a] source said.
Israeli industrialists testify to a modest amount of indirect trade between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Israel’s exports to the kingdom are estimated to be on a fairly small scale, perhaps a few dozen million dollars. These products are usually transferred to Saudi Arabia through third countries where they are repackaged and rebranded.
Israeli products sought after in Saudi Arabia include agricultural products, computer chips, hi-tech, desalination technology, irrigation equipment and security systems.
