Saudi King relays His Highness Amir’s letter to Cabinet

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Tuesday discussed with executives the contents of a letter he received from His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Presiding over the Saudi Cabinet’s weekly meeting, King Salman briefed the executive body on a phone conversation he held with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi, in addition to his encounters with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri and Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi Brahem.

The Saudi Cabinet also discussed defense minister Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s recent visit to Egypt, which resulted in a number of agreements sealed between both nations to deepen bilateral ties.

On the kingdom’s participation in the 37th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, the Cabinet said it proved the country’s unwavering commitment to protect human rights.

The Saudi officials commended neighboring Bahrain for foiling a number of “terrorist attacks” on its soil, while it denounced the ongoing violence in the besieged Syrian enclave of Eastern Ghouta.
