King Salman vows support to Nigeria’s fight against terror

JEDDAH: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman has pledged support for the Nigerian government’s fight against terrorist groups.
In a phone call to the country’s President Mohammed Buhari, the king condemned the terrorists who had recently launched attacks in Nigeria, according to a Saudi Press Agency report on Friday.
King Salman told Buhari that such “criminal acts” were denounced by Islam and that the Kingdom rejected any foreign intervention in Nigeria, which would destabilize the country’s security and stability, the report stated.
The king praised Nigeria for joining the 34-nation alliance aimed at fighting terrorist groups across the Middle East and the world; while Buhari reportedly thanked the Saudi monarch for his support, and said he would soon visit the Kingdom.
