The Saudi government condemned on Tuesday the terrorist bombing that targeted the entrance of the international airport in the Yemeni interim capital Aden last week.


Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the cabinet meeting that was held virtually amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


The government expressed the Kingdom’s solidarity with Yemen and its people, urging all parties to complete the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement in order to unite ranks, confront terrorism, achieve security and stability and restore the state.


The cabinet also tackled King Salman’s virtual participation at the G20 Summit that was held in Rome. King Salman underscored that the Kingdom will continue to play its leading role in supporting the global economic recovery.


King Salman briefed the ministers on the separate telephone talks he held with Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Kuwait Emir Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Jaber Al Sabah. The royals underlined the solidarity of the Gulf Cooperation Council members and the depth of the fraternal relations between all their peoples.


The cabinet highlighted the recent visit by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to the Kingdom and his high-level talks with Saudi officials that tackled bilateral cooperation and ways to develop it in all fields.


The ministers highlighted the fifth edition of the Future Investment Initiative forum that was hosted by Riyadh last week. The event brought together global leaders, stakeholders, investors and innovators.
