Saudi Arabia is proud of its achievements and position on international, Islamic and Arab arenas and its influential role in achieving regional and international security and peace, stated Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Vice President of the Council of Ministers and Minister of Defense.

Speaking on the 88th National Day, the Crown Prince took the opportunity to recall the achievements of the country’s founder King Abdul Aziz and his sons. He praised the growth and prosperity achieved under Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman.

“We are proud of developmental achievements and economic prosperity and social security thanks to the efforts of its sons and daughters,” he said.

The Crown Prince stressed that the kingdom will remain steadfast in the principles of tolerant Islam, a religion of moderation, and in fighting extremism and terrorism.

Saudi Arabia will continue to “protect Islam’s principles of tolerance, and continue its war on terrorism,” he said.

The Prince warned that no one will be allowed to attack the sovereignty of the kingdom or tamper with its security.

Prince Mohammed recalled that success and achievements were possible thanks to the establishment of transparency and justice to promote integrity and fight corruption and the efforts to achieve Vision 2030.

Vision 2030 “looks forward to the future,” and seeks to place Saudi Arabia “at the forefront of countries with continuous follow-up, guidance and support from King Salman,” added the Crown Prince.

He concluded by thanking God “for His generosity toward our country to serve the Two Holy Mosques and care for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims and visitors.”
