However the real circumstances for this is kept in secret. It is clear that the King and the Foreign Minister had an audience/meeting at the time for the this affair, it was though argued from both parties that this meeting was planned for a long time, and was to be about upcoming visits.
We have learned to understand that the King entered as a mediator in the affair, by sending a letter to the Saudi King. On which request this was, is unclear and we will probably never knew. I think that it is said that the King offered his services, through the diplomatic and personal relations with the Saudi King, to the Government by sending this message. But if the King summoned the Foreign Minister or not, or commanded her what to do, and how she (and the Government) should make their policy, is quite unlikely in my opinon.
