Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz expressed hope that Iran will reverse its hostile conduct in the area, emphasizing that it is a neighboring nation, and urged it to engage in conversation and collaboration.
The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques started the second year of the ninth session of the Saudi Shura Council yesterday, where he made his customary speech in the presence of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
King Salman said: “Iran is a neighboring country to the Kingdom, and we hope that it will change its negative policy and behavior in the region, and move towards dialogue and cooperation. We are following with great concern the Iranian regime’s destabilizing policy of security and stability in the region, including the establishment and support of sectarian and armed militias.
As it has built ballistic missile systems, Iran has failed to work with the international community on the nuclear program. “We are investigating the Iranian regime’s assistance for the terrorist Houthi militia, which is extending the war in Yemen,” he continued. “We are attempting to alleviate the human suffering of the brotherly Yemeni people and to persuade all sides to adopt political solutions,” King Salman added.
King Salman reiterated Saudi Arabia’s support for the Lebanese people and urged “all Lebanese leaders to prioritize the interests of their people, and to work to achieve what the brotherly Lebanese people aspire to in terms of security, stability, and prosperity, as well as to put an end to Hezbollah’s terrorist hegemony over the joints of the state.”
The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques stated via video conference that the start of the second phase of the Saudi Vision 2030 pushes the wheel of achievement and continues reforms for the country’s prosperity and ensuring the future of its people by creating a solid and diverse economy that faces global changes.
His approval confirmed the Crown Prince’s launch of various initiatives with a long-term vision, whose systems promote sustainability, prosperity, innovation, and corporate leadership, “which creates job opportunities and delivers tremendous returns on local goods.”
