Official sources revealed that the gift set includes a Rolex watch, gold plated pen, gold rings, a pair of gold plated cufflinks and tasbeeh (prayer beads).

Government and public office holders in the past kept gifts received from other heads of the states in their possession, and only contributed a nominal amount to the national treasury.
