#Vision Dubai United Arab Emirates:- The UAE Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying: "The allegations contained in recent press reports claiming that the UAE is among the countries accused of the alleged surveillance of journalists and other single people, are not based on any evidence and categorically false."

The Saudi Press Agency (SPA) also quoted an official source as saying, "The claim that an entity in the Kingdom used a program to monitor communications... is unfounded."

The source added that "the Kingdom's approach and policy are consistent and do not endorse such practices."

This comes in response to an investigation conducted by a large group of major media organizations in the world, accusing Saudi Arabia and the UAE of using the Israeli "Pegasus" program to spy on the communications of activists and journalists in several countries.

Major newspapers that cooperated in an investigation on the matter reported that the "Pegasus" program, which was developed by the Israeli "NSO" group, was used by regimes, governments and devices to spy on at least 180 journalists, 600 political figures, 85 human rights activists and 65 company owners in several countries.

In the list are two numbers belonging to two women who are relatives of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in his country's consulate in Istanbul in 2018. She wrote on her website that the report was "full of false assumptions and unconfirmed theories, and the sources provided information that was not based on fact," noting that she was considering in filing a defamation suit.
