The Saudi government reiterated on Tuesday the Kingdom’s support to stability in Sudan.

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz chaired the cabinet meeting that was held in Jeddah.

The government underscored the Kingdom's speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council during which it expressed its backing to everything that would help achieve stability in Sudan.

It called on the international community to help consolidate security and peace in the brotherly country.

The government highlighted the State Security’s designation of eight individuals and eleven entities as terrorist last week. They were blacklisted for their ties to the Iran-backed Houthi militias.

The designation embodies the Kingdom’s constant determination to target individuals and groups that are seeking to stoke violence in Yemen and threaten the lives of its people, which in turn will destabilize the region.

King Salman briefed the ministers on the messages he sent to each of the rulers of Oman, Qatar and Kuwait and the message he received from the president of Kyrgyzstan.

The ministers reviewed the outcomes of the 13th meeting of the Saudi-Moroccan committee that concluded in Rabat last week.

The meeting reflected the joint will of both countries to develop relations and elevate them to higher levels. They also agreed on common visions towards various regional and international developments.

The government stressed the Kingdom’s commitment towards combating climate change, highlighting its participation at the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF).

The Kingdom stressed its commitment to working with international partners to combat the phenomenon and achieve global goals in securing the best environment for future generations.
