Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf expressed concern over his country’s diplomatic row with Saudi Arabia, offering to help in resolving the issue, local media reported on Saturday.

The spat was triggered when Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom launched an attack on Saudi Arabia and criticized its judicial system.

The kingdom reacted by recalling its ambassador from Stockholm in protest. The UAE, Saudi Arabia’s Gulf ally, followed suit this week by recalling its envoy from Sweden and summoned the Swedish ambassador to Abu Dhabi to deliver a protest.

King Gustaf has said he will meet Foreign Minister Margot Wallström “to help contribute in finding a solution to the situation,” Sweden’s The Local news site cited the royal palace as saying.

“It’s important to have a good dialogue and good relations between countries,” the statement said, adding that the king hadn’t yet been in contact with the Saudi royals.
