Saudi Arabia warns of 'consequences' over US 9/11 law allowing victims to sue kingdom

The Saudi Foreign Ministry condemned its passage in a statement on Thursday.

"The erosion of sovereign immunity will have a negative impact on all nations, including the United States," it said.

A Saudi foreign ministry source called on the US Senate "to take the necessary measures to counter the disastrous and dangerous consequences" of the law.

The unnamed spokesman, cited by the official Saudi Press Agency, said the law was "a source of great worry".

Riyadh is one of Washington's longest-standing and most important allies in the Middle East and part of a US-led coalition fighting Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.
