Saudi Arabia’s King Salman stresses GCC relations in virtual cabinet session

According to the official Saudi Press Agency, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud presided over the Kingdom’s Cabinet’s virtual session on Tuesday (SPA).

The King briefed the Cabinet on two phone calls he made to Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah, during which he emphasized the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states’ solidarity and deep-rooted relations.

The Cabinet meeting also addressed the G20 Leaders’ Summit, which was held in Rome, Italy, and Saudi Arabia’s affirmation at the summit of continuing to play a leading role in economic and health upturn and recovery from global crises, as well as its eagerness to strengthen multilateral action to achieve prosperity in G20 countries and the entire world, according to SPA.

According to Acting Minister of Media Dr. Majid bin Abdullah al-Qasabi in a statement to SPA, the Cabinet reviewed recent meetings and talks between Saudi Arabia and several countries with the goal of developing and strengthening relations in various fields.

The Cabinet also reviewed Saudi Arabia’s fifth annual Future Investment Initiative (FII) Summit last week, which brought together representatives from governments, companies, investors, and innovators from around the world “to explore pioneering solutions in order to address challenges,” according to the press agency.

During the meeting, the Cabinet condemned “the terrorist bombing that targeted the Aden International Airport’s gate,” emphasizing the Kingdom’s solidarity with Yemen and its people. It urged all parties to put the Riyadh Agreement into action in order to unite, combat terrorism, and achieve security and stability.
