Boycotting Turkey’s products .. Saudi companies send a strong message to...

Saudi companies dealt a strong blow to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after they announced the suspension of all Turkish products imports, to increase the effectiveness of the popular boycott campaign.

The hashtag, #Popular_Turkey_Campaign, topped the list of the most traded on the Twitter site, for the third day in a row, until it reached the third rank in the world last night after thousands participated in this popular campaign.

The success of the campaign in Saudi Arabia, and the participation of the largest Saudi commercial centers and markets, contributed to its rapid transmission to other Arab countries, including the UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and others, and the campaign spread to the widest extent, in protest against Turkey’s policies and support for terrorism, as well as its interference in Arab affairs.

Saudi princes, media figures and elites issued a boycott campaign on social media, and Saudi, Gulf, and Egyptian singers interacted with them in protest against Turkish hostility to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries and Erdogan’s policies aimed at spreading chaos and devastation in the Arab world.

Othaim Markets

On Friday, the Saudi Abdullah Al-Othaim Markets Company joined the group of major markets and commercial centers in Saudi Arabia, which announced the suspension of importing all Turkish products and stopping their supply from local suppliers.

She explained, in a statement, that it is working to speed up disposal of the products stored in all its branches and warehouses and not to make any new orders.

The company confirmed that this decision came in solidarity with the popular campaign to boycott as a national duty, and in response to the Turkish government’s practices towards Saudi Arabia.

And she stressed, at the same time, that our leadership, our government and our security are an untouchable red line, directing salutations and respect to the brotherly Turkish people, far from the heinous behavior of their government.

Everyone’s responsibility

The latest boycott campaigns for Turkish products, launched earlier by the Chairman of the Council of Saudi Chambers of Commerce, Ajlan Al-Ajlan, accelerate the results of the lesson that the Saudis are teaching Erdogan in a collective, harmonious and harmonious manner.

The head of the Council of Chambers of Commerce in Saudi Arabia, Ajlan Al-Ajlan, called a few days ago, to boycott Turkish products.

Al-Ajlan returned, on Wednesday, to Twitter, tweeting: I say it with certainty and clarity: “No investment, no import, no tourism.”

He continued, “We, as citizens and businessmen, will not have any dealings with everything that is Turkish. Even Turkish companies operating in the Kingdom I call not to deal with them, and this is our least response against the continuing Turkish hostility and abuse.”


According to the Saudi newspaper, “Okaz”, the tweet met with interaction from Saudi citizens, while some of them called for an increase in the import tax on Turkish products.

The duty of every Arab and Gulf Arab

Engineer Mubarak Abdullah bin Nader tweeted, “Boycotting Turkish products at this time is a duty for every authentic Gulf citizen. We know that we are targeted by our religion, our peoples and our wealth from several enemies, including Turkey.”

Prince Abdulrahman bin Musaed commented on the attack on Turkish channels and newspapers, saying: “More than one newspaper and TV channel in Turkey attacks me and talks about me as if I am the reason for the popular campaign to boycott Turkish goods, and despite my great support for it, it is a popular campaign that started by Saudis who love their country and supported them in it. The campaign is a result, instead of attacking me, look at the reason, which is your president’s policies and his abuse. ”


Ibrahim Al-Sulaiman, a Saudi Twitter user, said: “Your boycott, boycott, and boycott of all Turkish products is nothing but recording a national popular stance that rejects the blatant Erdogan interference that our Arab countries are subjected to.”

While another Saudi Tweeter said: “Every enemy for my country is an enemy for us all, so it does not contribute to increasing the economy of those who plot and harbor evil for your country … the war is our war and we will win.”

Egyptian solidarity

Hani Selim from Egypt tweeted in response to the hashtag, saying: “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia succeeded in directing a harsh response and a fatal blow to Turkey through the wide boycott and without any announced decision, in response to the many insults that were issued by the Turks towards Saudi Arabia, a comprehensive boycott of Turkish products without a political decision. A pen on the face of the Turkish economy. ”


While an account bearing the name “Afaf Misr Watani” said in a blog post: “We here in Egypt have asked a lot to boycott Turkey’s products and thank the sisterly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for taking quick measures and resolving the matter with a fatal blow to Turkey.”


This Saudi national campaign comes from the people of the homeland in response to the rebellious Turkish President Erdogan, which reflects the Saudis’ circumvention of their leaders and their frustration of all the projects of chaos that the enemies seek to fabricate.

Campaign success

Surprisingly, Saudi Arabia’s imports during the first 8 months of 2020 fell dramatically to $ 1.91 billion, according to Bloomberg, which confirms the power of the Turkish product in the Saudi market.

Boycott products

There are many brands of Turkish products that are boycotted, but according to the figures, the majority of the products are for carpets, textiles, chemicals, grains, furniture and steel.

On social media, thousands tweeted to warn about these products, especially in light of the availability of many alternatives to them with higher quality and more competitive prices, and the tweeters monitored a list of 86 Turkish brands.

The tweeters said that Turkish products can be distinguished through the “barcode” that begins with the number 869.
