Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Chairs Cabinet Session
Riyadh, SPA: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chaired the Cabinet session held in Riyadh today.
The Cabinet was briefed on the recent talks, meetings, and phone calls between His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and several other leaders concerning ties, and regional and international issues.
The Cabinet commended the outcome of the official visits to the Kingdom by the presidents of Indonesia and the Republic of Korea, and the prime ministers of Singapore and Malaysia, including the signing of a number of agreements and memoranda of understanding to boost cooperation in various fields.
In a statement to the Saudi Press Agency following the session, Minister of Media Salman bin Yousef Al-Dosari said that the Cabinet expressed appreciation for the positive outcome of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Riyadh Summit, co-chaired by HRH the Crown Prince and the president of Indonesia, which will contribute to bolstering cooperation between the GCC and ASEAN countries to the benefit of their peoples and will increase their opportunity to develop, progress and prosper.
The Cabinet also followed up on the latest developments in Gaza and the escalating violence there, reiterating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's complete rejection of targeting civilians, under any pretext, and the importance of immediate efforts to stop the military operations and de-escalate the situation to avoid dangerous ramifications of these operations on the security and stability of the region and the world at large.
The Cabinet said choosing the Kingdom to host the 26th meeting of the World Tourism Organization (WTO) General Assembly in 2025, and its re-election as president of the WTO Executive Council come as a recognition of the Kingdom's leadership in this sector, and its role in achieving a brighter and more cooperative future.
