Published in Saudi Press Agency on 21 - 02 - 2020

Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah, Minister of Foreign Affairs arrived here today, on an official visit to the Federal Republic of Germany,
which started with a meeting with his German counterpart Heiko Maas.
During the meeting, they discussed bilateral relations between the two friendly countries and ways of promoting coordination and mutual cooperation, regarding regional and international files.
Following the meeting, the two ministers held a joint press conference, during which the Foreign Minister praised the relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the Federal Republic of Germany, describing them as historical and solid, stressing that there is close cooperation between the two countries, in several fields, including economic and political consultation and expressing aspiration to intensify and push this cooperation to a more wider and broader horizons, in all fields.
He also condemned the two shooting incidents that occurred in the German city of Hanau, reaffirming the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's deep solidarity with the Federal Republic of Germany and the families of the victims, expressing regret for the incidents.
Minister of Foreign Affairs indicated that the talks with his German Foreign Minister were fruitful and constructive and dealt with bilateral relations and ways of strengthening them, in addition to developments in regional situations, in the Middle East.
He said that: "There is general agreement in views regarding the necessity of giving priority to peaceful solutions to resolve disputes, and we also spoke about the situation in Yemen, and I explained to the minister the recent negative developments, including the missile attacks on civilian by the Houthis, and the ongoing military escalation from the Houthi side, which indicates their lack of seriousness in the search for a political solution to the crisis, and therefore we encourage all international actors to emphasize that we support the coalition effort and the legitimate government of Yemen to find a political solution."
Commending the position of the international community towards the Houthi actions, regarding obstacles imposed by the Houthi militia on aid, and prevent it to reach to those who deserve, it in the areas of Yemen they control, he stressed the importance of continuing to support humanitarian work inside Yemen to alleviate the suffering of the brotherly Yemeni people.
The two ministers discussed the regional situation, particularly the Iranian interventions in the region, whether they are in Syria, Iraq or Yemen, reviewing the Kingdom's position on the importance of continuing pressure on Iran until it heads towards a peaceful direction, avoids interference in the affairs of its neighbors and works to solve all outstanding problems in this area.
Prince Faisal bin Farhan praised the efforts of the German government, at the Berlin conference regarding resolving the crisis in Libya, stressing the position of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in support of this path and all good offices aimed, at resolving the crisis that caused so much trouble to the Libyan people, saying: "As I explained to the minister of foreign affairs, our very great concern is about sending Syrian fighters to the Libyan north by Turkey, because this contributes to the continuing instability in that country and fueling the conflict, and we will continue to support all efforts that seek to find a peaceful solution among Libyan brothers, via ending such suffering.
For his part, the German Foreign Minister welcomed Prince Faisal bin Farhan, pointing out that the talks included several files, including the Kingdom's hosting of the G20 summit, noting the areas of development in the Kingdom.
