Published in Saudi Press Agency on 16 - 03 - 2021

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Prime Minister, chaired today the Cabinet's virtual session.
At the outset of the session, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques briefed the Cabinet on the contents of the message he has sent to Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Emir of the State of Kuwait, in which he confirmed the firm ties binding the two countries and peoples.
Then the Cabinet reviewed the overall talks and consultations His Royal Highness the Crown Prince had with each of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi; Russian President's Special Envoy on Syria Alexander Lavrentiev; Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, covering the bilateral relations and ways of enhancing and developing them as well as discussing the developments of regional and international situations and coordinating the efforts being exerted towards them in a way that enhances security and stability.
In this regard, the Cabinet reiterated the importance of continuing lending support for solving the Syrian crisis and finding a political path to serve as an asset to reach a settlement and stability of the situation in Syria in a way that guarantees security for its people and protects them from terrorist organizations and sectarian militias which impede reaching a real solution.

The Cabinet underlined the importance of extending weapons embargo on Iran as it is continuing to provide the terrorist Houthi militias with advanced weapons and drones used to terrify the Yemenis and target civilians and civil objects in the Kingdom deliberately and systematically.
The Cabinet expressed the Kingdom's support for the international efforts aimed at ensuring that the Iranian regime does not develop a nuclear weapons system and ballistic missiles, making the Arab gulf region free of all weapons of mass destruction, and respect the independence and sovereignty of countries and not to interfere in its internal affairs.
The Cabinet expressed the Kingdom's congratulations to Libya, its government and its people on the occasion of granting confidence to the government of national unity, and its support for the efforts leading to a political solution to the crisis.
