E-Media: Riyadh - Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chaired yesterday the weekly cabinet meeting held at the Yamamah Palace. The cabinet welcomed the adoption by the Council of Human Rights of the United Nations of the Goldstone Report on the Israeli aggression on Gaza with a majority of 25 votes, reflecting thereby the illegitimacy of the practices carried out by Israel in the Palestinian lands, and the existence of an international majority that rejects these practices against the Palestinian people and the Islamic holy places and demands stopping them. According to Saudi Press Agency, the cabinet approved the Kingdom's accession to the agreement on the safety of the United Nations and associated personnel signed in New York. The cabinet also approved that the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu will administer the Zone of Ras Alzoor for Mineral Industries, provide the services for the mining and other industries following the example of the two industrial cities of Jubail and Yanbu and adopt a program for establishing and administering the Zone of Ras Alzoor for Mineral Industries with an independent budget provided that the commission will recover its costs according to its regulation.
