Saudi Arabia and Thailand have put a halt to conflicts regarding stolen gems and jewels which has somewhat led to a row of killings and has spanned 30 years.
In 1989, a Thai servant of a Saudi prince had stolen the gems including a 50-carat blue diamond which stirred both countries into a fierce conflict.
According to BBC News Diplomats from Saudi Arabia were killed in Bangkok in the process of trying to retrieve lost jewels, and Thai policemen have marked suspects but most of them were not convicted.
The Thai servant had sold the jewels without actually knowing what they were worth. When they were to be returned, Thai authorities had given back mostly fake jewels.
The only people that were jailed for the controversy were the Thai servant and a police officer.
The new diplomatic relation is now receptive to Thai people finding jobs in Saudi Arabia which has since opened up for millions of workers from overseas seeking employment.
Saudi Arabia further promised to kick start direct flights to Thailand from May.
The biggest contact that has happened after the controversy between Saudi Arabia and Thailand is the Thai prime minister’s presence in Saudi on Tuesday this year.
The prime minister stated how much regret he feels at the whole thing that had conspired between both countries.
Although most of the jewels are still missing, the attempt to revive a diplomatic bond by returning those that are traceable ends the dispute.
The dispute had caused unemployment for thousands of Thai migrants in Saudi, whereas before the controversy, hundreds of thousand secured jobs in the Muslim country.
