RIYADH: Minister of Energy of Saudi Arabia Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud on Monday said the true journalism was like a mirror, hence the criticism in media should not be misconstrued.

Addressing the special session in the Saudi Media Forum, Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud said there was always a margin for improvement.

“The criticism should be used to bring enhancement. If I was not working in the energy sector, then nobody would have recalled me,” he said.

The minister said decision of the ministry in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) meeting in October 2022 was picked apart. He said ministers of nine other countries were also present on the occasion, but the journalist subjected only Saudi Arabia to criticism.

“I ask where are the ones who subjected us to criticism today? I daily talk to 40-50 journalists,” he said.
