Published: Updated:

Saudi political writer Hamdan Al-Shihri said to Al Arabiya during the daily talk- show Panorama "we know that the problems of the so-called Arab Spring, caused the problems of refugees and displaced persons and caused the escalation of terrorist organizations in addition to regional interventions and other negative issues which appeared on the ground."

He added “Of course, if you asked me why there was no Arabic capacity, I would have said that in fact, we were unable to host this large number of refugees despite the fact that the refugees have been host, as you know, in Jordan, in Lebanon, in Turkey, on the border areas and of course they have prepared places for them there. In the beginning, it was about tents. Saudi Arabia, as well as the Gulf countries, have offered field hospitals and have provided aid to those countries."
