DUBAI Oct 3 Saudi Arabia said on Monday that a
U.S. law allowing citizens to sue the kingdom over the Sept. 11
2001 attacks represented a threat to international relations and
urged Congress to act to prevent any dangerous consequences from
the new legislation.
The cabinet, at its weekly meeting in the capital Riyadh,
also said that the law, known as JASTA, represented a violation
of a leading principle preventing lawsuits against governments
that regulated international relations for hundreds of years.
