“We have all admired the Kingdom’s leadership through the G20, in coordinating international efforts to strengthen the global economy, and fight virus Corona. The relationship between Saudi Arabia and the UK is an old and historic one, but our partnership is a modern one. We are committed to working with the Saudi authorities to support their Vision 2030 Program, to creating jobs and opportunities for Saudi Arabia’s young population, and to developing mutual ties between our two countries to the benefit of both peoples. I wish all the Saudi people the very best of luck and good health in the year ahead.” - UK Ambassador Neil Crompton

“Saudi Arabia has shown strong leadership in dealing with COVID-19, strong leadership as president of the G20, and strong leadership by contributing to developing a new vaccine against COVID-19. It has also demonstrated strong leadership by implementing preventive measures, including reducing the number of pilgrims last year. My staff and I have been very safe throughout this time, and we felt that we were in good hands. Therefore, I wish all of you a good National Day celebration in Saudi Arabia.” - Danish Ambassador Ole Emil Moesby

“Formal relations between India and Saudi Arabia date back 73 years, to soon after India’s independence, but our peoples’ interaction goes back several centuries. All these years, these interactions have strengthened, and our diplomatic and bilateral relations have blossomed into a strategic partnership. I appreciate the authorities of the Kingdom for affectively tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, and keeping the economic progress of the Kingdom on course, and I particularly thank King Salman for taking special care of all expatriates in the Kingdom in these difficult times.” - Indian Ambassador Ausaf Sayeed

“Let me also congratulate Saudi Arabia for its successful presidency of the G20, a work carried out under very challenging conditions due to the pandemic. Finally, I would like all of us to extend our warm gratitude to all the brave health workers who saved many lives and provided care for so many. Thanks to them and to the measures taken by our respective authorities, the situation here in Saudi Arabia and in my home country of Sweden is now much better than a few months ago, but it is important to remember that the situation in many parts of the world is still extremely worrying.” - Swedish Ambassador Niclas Trouvé

“On this special day, I would like to mention all the frontline health care workers who have worked so hard and so tirelessly to keep people safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, I would also like to mention all the officials and the staff who helped keep pilgrims safe during this year’s limited Hajj.” - Australian Ambassador Ridwaan Jadwat

“I want to take the opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all of you, particularly to the health workers, and all those who worked very hard in order to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. They have done an amazing job, and I want to thank them for their dedication. All in all, the country has performed rather well, and this is also thanks to the resilience of the Saudi people. The decision, taken by the highest authority, to limit access to the holy sites for Hajj and Umrah to a very small number of people has also been a difficult, but necessary one to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I salute the courage of the authorities for having taken such a measure. I hope we will, all together, overcome this difficult period. I would like to congratulate the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Saudi people for their National Day.” - Belgian Ambassador Dominique Mineur
