King Salman chairs cabinet meeting

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, during the weekly Cabinet meeting on

Monday, thanked the Interior Ministry for its efforts in “detecting and thwarting a

number of terrorist plots”  that targeted the country’s human resources and other resources .
Such plots are set up by terrorist organizations abroad to undermine the Kingdom and its

policies, which are based on the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon

him), said Adel Al-Toraifi, minister of culture and information, after the meeting.
He said King Salman has stressed that citizens and expatriates are responsible for

protecting the country, and should report any attempts threatening its security.

He said the ministers also thanked the king for supporting the Yemeni people, including

his directive for the Interior Ministry to help the country’s workers legalize their

residence status in the Kingdom.

The Cabinet also welcomed the appointment of Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed of Mauritania as

the new envoy of the secretary-general of the United Nations to Yemen, said Al-Toraifi.

The ministers also hailed the results of the consultative meeting of the Gulf

Cooperation Council (GCC) ministers of interior, which approved an action plan to tackle

terrorism and extremism, including blocking sources of funding for these groups.

The ministers welcomed the heads of the Gulf Cooperation Council who are attending the

15th Annual Consultative meeting on Tuesday in Riyadh, said Al-Toraifi.

The Cabinet also reviewed and welcomed the findings of several scientific and economic

activities and forums held during the week, including the International Experts Workshop

on Carbon Management and its Implications, the First Global Methane Initiative Workshop

and Exhibition held in Khobar, and the Kingdom’s participation in the Beijing Energy

Club held in China.
