Empowerment of women in the Kingdom is moving naturally in the right direction, giving us a certain impression that Saudi women have the capacity to engage in all the tasks assigned to them.
They have proven their worth in all areas of life, not only locally but also internationally through their active contributions which have been praised and appreciated and we are proud of them and their multiple achievements.
The appointment of Her Royal Highness Princess Reema bint Bandar Bin Sultan as the Ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to the United States reflects our country's great interest in giving women full confidence through opportunities they really deserve to take top positions.
This post as the ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Washington requires a lot of innate talent and diplomacy in dealing with the US administration, members of Congress and leaders of thought and media of different orientations, a matter that is not easy certainly, but sometimes fraught with difficulties that require sophisticated diplomatic treatment and serious dialogues to reach results that serve the interests of both countries.
In spite of all this, our wise leadership considered that Princess Reema was the best to assume this important post in addition to the special relations between Riyadh and Washington.
The United States officially recognized the Kingdom in May 1931 by providing full diplomatic recognition, and since that time, relations have moved progressively until they have reached the strategic stage, which confirms their depth.
The appointment of Princess Reema bint Bandar in this post is a tribute to the confidence that women enjoy in our country, which makes them demonstrate their capabilities and reveal their potential, as doors are open to them to take the highest ranks as long as they are eligible.
