Unity is secret of KSA’s strength and greatness

Today is the 86th anniversary of national unity for Saudi Arabia. On this cherished occasion, we cannot fail to salute and be proud of our soldiers stationed along the border, risking their lives potentially in sacrifice for their country.
This sends the message of the most beautiful love that these soldiers have for their homeland messages, demonstrating their steadfastness and the highest loyalty and devotion for the land that embraced their parents and grandparents.
The celebration of the National Day means celebrating the anniversary of the day in which the unification of the Kingdom, which was once scattered and disparate into a cohesive whole in the year 1351 (1932). 
On that day, founder King Abdulaziz, May God have mercy on him, issued a decree creating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from the Kingdom of Hejaz and Najd.
Whenever this anniversary passes, we mark its historic significance on the day across the entire nation, coming together to feel proud.
 It is the unity achieved by the country that is the secret of its strength and greatness; the bedrock of all the growth and the development and progression we have achieved.
 From here, we saw the beginning of standardization.
Today, we realize the renaissance that has been achieved and the progress made over the last 86 years.
We’ve been able to see how our country in a very short period of time went from an unknown small nation into a major state able to impose itself with a prestige and stature in the world, becoming a voice in politics and the global economy.
This year, as we celebrate our National Day, it is important to remember that our country today faces difficult challenges, threatening nations and malicious people intent to harm us.
It is our responsibility to ensure the continuation of unity to maintain our security.
We must stand united in the face of danger and those with the aims to demolish the gains that we have built for more than eight decades.
 God bless our country and everyone who defends it.
