In a virtual session chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the Cabinet reiterated the Kingdom's call for denouncing the cowardly terrorist attacks carried by the Iran-backed Houthi militia targeting Abha International Airport and its hostile actions aiming to undermine peace in Yemen.

The Cabinet also pointed out to the Kingdom's affirmation before "Philia Forum — Building Friendship, Peace and Prosperity from the Mediterranean to the Gulf" on the importance of intensifying consultations and coordination to safeguard peace and security in international sea lanes, in a manner that guarantees freedom of trade and navigation, respects the principles of sovereignty and good neighborliness among states, and condemns any external interference in the internal affairs of states, including threatening international peace and security and global economic stability.
The Cabinet expressed Saudi Arabia's strong condemnation and denunciation of the cowardly terrorist attacks that targeted Irbil International Airport, and fully stand with Iraq in all its measures to preserve its security and support its efforts in fighting terrorist organizations that seek to undermine its stability and influence its sovereignty.
The Cabinet reviewed the developments of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), a set of reports on the latest virus statistics in the Kingdom, and the relevant indicators.
