Saudi Information Minister Awwad Saleh al-Awwad (SPA)

London – Earlier, Asharq Al-Awsat posted on its Arabic Twitter account a series of tweets concerning the visit of Saudi Information Minister Awwad Saleh al-Awwad to Germany and meeting a number of German officials including the Foreign Minister and Deputy Parliament Speaker Claudia Ross.

The unintentional error was in one of the tweets about Mrs. Ross’ title, which said: “Awwad: German Speaker says Qatar shouldn’t allowed to host Fifa World Cup 2022 because of its corruption, sponsorship of terrorism, and endangering security and international stability” as it should have said “deputy speaker”.
