Saudi Undersecretary Abdullah Al-Mousa: warns Saudi students in US not to beat their children as against the law there

“We advised those who intend to take their families with them to bear in
mind the laws of where they’re going and avoid any form of violence against
their children,” Al-Shammari said.

The Deputy Higher Education Minister for Foreign Scholarship Programs at the
Ministry of Higher Education has said that the media has been making “too
big a deal” over increased security at airports in the United States.

“Saudi students in the US have not undergone any special or personal
searches at airports,” said Undersecretary Abdullah Al-Mousa Friday. “The
media’s blowing it all up out of proportion.”

Al-Mousa said the recent meeting of students on the fifth phase of the
scholarship program to acquaint them with various practical and cultural
aspects of what awaits them in their study destinations abroad would prove
effective, based on the experience of previous orientation-style preparation
meetings.

Adviser to the King Abdullah Scholarships Program Wael Al-Hadrami said he
was pleased with the 98 percent student attendance at the meeting. The
nature and characteristics and laws of each country were discussed
individually,” Al-Hadrami said.

Muhammad Al-Shammari from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the meeting
provided essential information on how to avoid and manage problems and make
contact with embassies.

“We advised those who intend to take their families with them to bear in
mind the laws of where they’re going and avoid any form of violence against
their children,” Al-Shammari said.
