The president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), Prince Sultan bin Salman, met the speaker of the House of Peoples of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo to discuss further co-operation between the nations.
The meeting came on the sidelines of Prince Sultan’s official visit to the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bosnia’s speaker of the House of Peoples, Safet Softic, said: “The visit of a senior Saudi official to Bosnia is a sign that communication between the two countries is constantly growing and improving.”
Softic was eager to see economic relations between Bosnia and the Kingdom become as strong as political and humanitarian relations between them.
Prince Sultan said: “It is our religious and humanitarian duty to support Bosnia, and King Salman has given special attention to Bosnia’s cause since the war started in the days of the late King Fahd and until justice was achieved and the war ended with Saudi Arabia’s support.”
The SCTH chief explained that Saudi Arabia is investing in Bosnia’s future as a country located in the heart of Europe with a future in the European market.
Prince Sultan also visited the King Fahd Cultural Center in Sarajevo. He praised the center, saying it is one of the largest and most important support projects provided by the Kingdom to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
King Salman “attended the opening ceremony of the center,” said Prince Sultan, who was accompanied by the Saudi ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina. “The center should be a cultural addition to the culture prevailing here.”
