Sandberg said Marc Zuckerberg was opposed to this request and counted it as an insult.

Sandberg stated that Saudi Arabia wants to achieve its political goals by exploiting its economic influence regardless to the fact that such actions are against the global free flow of information on the internet. She emphasized that Facebook policies ensure the free flow of information and such requests are not welcomed in Facebook and if needed FB will take legal action against such demands.
