Saudi Arabia welcomes 9/11 classified documents release, calls for full declassification of materials
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 08 - 09 - 2021

WASHINGTON — The Saudi Embassy in the United States welcomed the release of classified documents relating to the terrorist attacks against the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.
"Since that horrific day 20 years ago, the leadership of Saudi Arabia has consistently called for the release of all materials related to the United States' investigation of the attacks," the embassy said in a statement on Wednesday.
The Kingdom has always advocated for transparency surrounding the Sept. 11 tragedy.
Saudi Arabia reiterated its longstanding support for the full declassification of any documents and materials relating to the United States' investigation of the terrorist attacks, with the hope that a full release of these documents will end the baseless allegations against the Kingdom once and for all.
"As past investigations have revealed, including the 9/11 Commission and the release of the so-called "28 Pages," no evidence has ever emerged to indicate that the Saudi government or its officials had previous knowledge of the terrorist attack or were in any way involved in its planning or execution."
Previous declassification of materials relating to the Sept. 11 attacks, such as the "28 Pages," have only confirmed the 9/11 Commission's finding that Saudi Arabia had nothing to do with this terrible crime. It is lamentable that such false and malicious claims persist.
The embassy assured that any allegation that Saudi Arabia is complicit in the Sept. 11 attacks is categorically false.
"As the administrations of the past four US presidents have attested, Saudi Arabia has unwaveringly condemned and denounced the deplorable crimes that took place against the United States, its close ally and partner."
The embassy pointed out to the fact that Saudi Arabia, alongside the US, has been Al Qaida's top target, even before the Sept. 11 attacks.
Saudi Arabia along with the US has spared no effort in tackling the men, money, and mindset of terrorism and extremism in all its forms.
Saudi Arabia is very proud of its anti-terrorism record, including its efforts to thwart terrorist financing, it's comprehensive strategies to counter extremist ideology in both the public domain and online, and the degradation and defeat of terrorist organizations throughout our region.
"The Kingdom is an essential counterterrorism partner to the United States. Together, our two countries have countered Daesh (so-called ISIS in Iraq and Syria), and delivered severe setbacks to Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and ISIS in Yemen, among other successes."
"The coordinated work of Saudi Arabia and the United States to disrupt and intercept terrorist plots over the last 20 years undoubtedly has saved the lives of thousands of Saudis and Americans, and made the world a safer place," it added.
The embassy expressed sympathy with the victims. "As a victim of terrorism and a firsthand witness to the horror and lasting impact it has on innocent men, women and children, Saudi Arabia understands the indescribable pain and hardship of the families who lost loved ones on that unforgettable day. They remain in our thoughts and prayers."
