Statement by Chargé d’Affaires Christopher Henzel on Saudi Arabia’s National Day
On behalf of the United States of America and all my colleagues here at the Embassy and our Consulates General in Jeddah and Dhahran, I extend our congratulations to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and the people of Saudi Arabia on your national day.
Our partnership with Saudi Arabia extends from our close security cooperation to our strong relations in business and exchange programs. Together we are working to promote the security and prosperity of both our countries. Through our educational and cultural exchange programs we learn from each other and deepen our partnership. Over many decades hundreds of thousands of Saudi and American officials, tourists, business representatives, and students have traveled between our countries and in the process have cemented our strong ties.
I wish the people of Saudi Arabia success in all their endeavors and look forward to a bright future as our two countries continue to work together.
