The French Consulate and the Jordanian Consulate, paid tribute to the excellent relationship between the two countries, as well as their mutual achievements in a belated celebration of the Saudi National Day. This took place as part of Jordanian Enterprises forum program under the patronage of Prince Sattam bin Khaled at the residence of French Consulate General Dr. Louis Blaine on Wednesday.
Dr. Louis Blaine welcomed Prince Sattam and guests, saying that the French Consulate was honored to host the Saudi National Day with the cooperation of Jordanian consulate as part of Jordanian Enterprises forum, though they were late in organizing the event due to the hot weather and Haj season.
He said that France and Jordan are enjoying historical links in trade, cultural exchange and in many other ways, and that he was very happy to have Prince Sattam, as well as Saudi and Jordanian communities present on the occasion.
Jawaher Al-Abad, the supervisor and media coordinator of the event, also welcomed Prince Sattam and thanked him for attending the event.
She commented this is not something new for Prince Sattam as he already sponsors a number national events. She said the Jordanian people love and appreciate his continuous support for the mutual relationship between the Kingdom and Jordan.
She said the history of any country starts with the founding, first, of a national identity, and that national days such as this therefore play a very important part in remembering the struggle that was won in establishing their homeland, and in remembering the martyrs.
“We congratulate the whole Kingdom for this special day,” she said.
Mohammed Ayman Al-Rifai, the supervisor of the Enterprises Forum, said that the National Day is synonymous with remembering decades of unity and struggle.
“It is our pleasure to celebrate the Kingdom’s National Day; the world is inspired by the people of the Kingdom for their struggle, development and success, bringing to the forefront its sons and daughters in all spheres of life,” he said.
He further said that the Kingdom is based on the welfare of its citizens, and that many Jordanians consider Saudi Arabia to be their second home, as both of the kingdoms support for each other in various fields shows the strength of the relationship between the two countries.
