Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Chairs Cabinet's Session
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 31 - 07 - 2018

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chaired the Cabinet's session in NEOM in Tabuk region on Tuesday afternoon.
The Minister of Media Dr. Awwad bin Saleh Al-Awwad said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency that the Cabinet reviewed a number of reports on various issues and latest developments at regional and international arenas and stressed that the failed terrorist attack on one of Saudi oil tankers in international waters, west of Hodeidah Seaport, by Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militias proves beyond any doubt the danger of these militias and those behind them on regional and international security, stressing that threats to crude oil tankers affect the freedom of international trade and maritime navigation in Strait of Bab Al-Mandab and the Red Sea, and the importance of handing over Hodeidah Governorate and its seaport to the Yemeni government to prevent its use as a military base from which terrorist attacks are launched against shipping routes and international trade.
The Cabinet expressed the Kingdom's condemnation of suicide bombings that targeted a polling station in Pakistani city of Quetta, and a security convoy, west of the Afghan capital of Kabul and the shooting incident in the Canadian city of Toronto, offering condolences to the families of the victims and the governments of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Canada, wishing a speedy recovery for the injured, reaffirming the Kingdom's solidarity and stand with those countries against various acts of violence, terrorism and extremism.
The Cabinet thanked the King for his order to host 1,500 pilgrims of the martyrs of the Yemeni National Army and Sudanese forces participating in Determination Storm and Renewal of Hope Operations within the Program of Guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for Hajj this year, considering this order as an extension of his continuing noble works towards Muslims in general and the families of martyrs in particular, and as an appreciation for those who have sacrificed their lives to defend Yemen's security, unity and territorial integrity.
