Embassy urges Pinoys in Saudi Arabia to stay calm

The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh has advised Filipinos in Saudi Arabia to remain calm amid reports of worsening conflict between the Kingdom and Syria.
In a short statement on Wednesday, the embassy said there is "currently no reason to be concerned about the safety and security of Filipinos in Saudi Arabia."
"The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh advises the Filipino community to remain calm," it said as it vowed to "provide regular updates on the situation in Saudi Arabia as the need arises."
The embassy issued the statement after several pro-OFW groups appealed to the government to prepare in case the security situation in the Middle East worsens due to the Saudi Arabia-Syria conflict.
There are an estimated 2.1 million OFWs in the Middle East; more than a million are in Saudi Arabia. —KBK, GMA News
