Thailand's relations with Saudi Arabia were blighted for three decades by a fabled missing gemstone that probably never even existed
Astonishing story ,fit for a blockbuster movie.
So well researched nd seems a very authentic account.
Best Sunday read .
as always, top notch journalism, meticulously researched w/o hyperbole or needless speculation- a thoroughly engrossing piece!
Thank you Andrew, This is superb stuff

Very educational article
Thank you for this extraordinary story. I have been a foreign correspondent in Thailand covering news for Danish media since 1988 and must admit to being guilty of buying many of the lies and hearsays that you expose. I am critical of some of your work but this story is really educating me. Well done!
What a tale!
