Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has lauded the support given to Palestinians by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

In a cable to the Saudi King on Wednesday, Abbas said: "The State of Palestine and its people and government appreciate your stances in support of Palestine throughout the years of its legitimate struggle for the sake of freedom, independence and sovereignty over our Palestinian land and its capital Jerusalem (Al-Quds)".

"Your important and effective role towards our just cause and the causes of our nation embodies your commitment and courage and your stand with justice and the serious endeavor to restore our lands,” he added.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, has also received a cable of congratulations from Abbas on the occasion of the 90th Saudi National Day.
