86 years of the Kingdom Celebrated in Saudi Arabia and in Brussels


Speaking on the occasion of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s 86th national day, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz said, “It is an anniversary in which everybody recalls the pioneering role of the late founder of this great entity in which we witness the fruit of his blessed efforts in present reality in security, stability, and development of a homeland which occupies the centre of this world and affects its security and stability by virtue of its strategic location, spiritual weight and economic status, which enabled it to be one of the strongest economies in the world, a member of the Group of twenty with its strong influence in the world economy, determining its tracks and contributing to the solution of its problems.”

Looking towards a bright future, the Deputy Crown Prince said that Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 economic roadmap “ushered in a new stage of development and hard work,” which would facilitate “the continuation of proceeding along with the developed countries and the achievement of the desired growth, while adhering to the fundamentals of our tolerant religion and noble values.”

He also addressed the scourge of terrorism, which threatens the security of the Kingdom, noting that Saudi “security agencies are working with the support, care and directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to maintain what has been achieved of unique security and stability compared to any other country in the world. Saudi security services have successfully managed to achieve remarkable success domestically and internationally in confronting the phenomenon of terrorism that has swept the world and thus, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has presented a Saudi security experience which has been appreciated and admired by everyone and has become a source of benefit for many countries in fighting terrorism and drying up its intellectual and financial sources.”

In Brussels, Ambassador Abdulrahman S. Alahmed, Head of the Mission to the European Union and Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg welcomed revered guests to celebrate the anniversary of the nation’s foundation. A short video on the event in Arabic can be viewed below.
