Saudi FM gifts Japanese counterpart ‘the great great grandfather of iPhone’
A funny moment between Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir and his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono was caught on camera.
In details, Jubeir presented Kono with the gift of an Islamic astrolabe and explained its characteristics saying: “This is the first personal computer. Everything has meaning; I do not understand it because I am not a scientist.”
The astrolabe comes with a manual as well so Kono jokingly said it was like an iPhone to which Jubeir replied: “Yes, the great great grandfather of the iPhone.”
