Saudi Cabinet Affirms Kingdom’s Support for Political Solution to Russia-Ukraine Crisis

The Saudi Cabinet on Tuesday affirmed the Kingdom’s support for efforts that led to a political solution to the Russia-Ukraine crisis to achieve security and stability.

It reiterated standing by needy people around the world and alleviating their suffering, including providing urgent medical and shelter aid worth $10 million for Ukrainian refugees to neighboring countries in coordination with the UN.

During the session, which was chaired by King Salman at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah, the Cabinet stressed Saudi Arabia’s and Kuwait’s right to develop the joint Dorra offshore gas field, in implementation of the signed agreement between the two sides on March 21, 2022.

The session discussed recent developments in the region and around the world, especially Palestine. In this regard, it called on the international community to hold the Israeli occupation forces responsible for crimes and violations at Al-Aqsa Mosque. It also said that these actions would impact the chances of reviving the peace process in the Middle East.

Regarding the improvement of Saudi Arabia’s credit outlook twice since the start of this year, topping G20 countries, the Saud ministers said the progress was a result of efforts during the past five years in line with Saudi Vision 2030, positively reflecting the effectiveness of fiscal policy and raising the efficiency of government work.
