KSRelief delegation to visit Brussels to enhance ties

BRUSSELS: Adviser to the royal court and general supervisor of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), Abdullah Al-Rabeeah said that his upcoming visit to Brussels will contribute to the development of Saudi relations with other countries, and regional and international organizations.
He also stressed that the visit aims to demonstrate the policies of the Kingdom and confirm its role and position in serving the needy around the world.
Al-Rabeeah and his accompanying delegation will visit Brussels Sept. 25-27, during which he will meet with officials and visit EU institutions.
The Saudi ambassador to Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and head of the Kingdom’s mission to the EU, Abdulrahman bin Suleiman Al-Ahmad, welcomed the visit.
Al-Ahmad said: “It aims to demonstrate the great humanitarian efforts being made by Saudi Arabia through KSRelief to alleviate the suffering of the needy in the world. Yemen, in particular, is suffering from difficult humanitarian conditions due to a lack of food and medicine, and their inhuman exploitation as tools in the conflict.”
“It also aims to demonstrate the policies of the Kingdom and confirm its role and position in serving the needy around the world,” he said.
Al-Ahmad stressed the deep ties of friendship and cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the EU, which “shows the appreciation of the EU and its institutions for the Kingdom’s growing role at the regional and international levels … and for its distinguished initiatives at the political and economic levels, its active membership in many international and regional organizations, and its tangible humanitarian and relief efforts and contributions in this regard.”

Saudi ambassador to US: Establishing peace is one of the pillars of Kingdom’s foreign policy

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said the signing of the peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea is part of the kingdom’s foreign policy in establishing peace and stability.

“The Kingdom has always been the cornerstone of peace in the region and the world, and has spared no effort in many countries, foremost among them Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan and many others,” the ambassador said.

“As some countries begin to cultivate sectarian divisions, the kingdom seeks to resolve their disputes,” he added.

He expressed his thanks to the UAE in their efforts in the signing of the peace deal between the two countries.

The ambassador pointed out that the security of the Red Sea, especially the Bab Al Mandab Strait and the Horn of Africa, is one of the Kingdom’s security concerns, regionally and globally.

The ambassador stressed the Kingdom’s continued efforts to preserve security in this region from external threats, including Iranian-backed militias as well as piracy.
