Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has admitted that Saudi Arabia is trying to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan.
In an interview with an international media outlet, Jubeir said that Saudi Arabia wants peace in the entire region and is working for it at various levels.
“We are constantly working for peace and stability in the region,” he said. Whether it is peace between Israel and the Palestinians or Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan.
“We are even trying to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan. Whether it’s stabilizing Sudan or ending the war in Libya, we have played a positive role everywhere. ”
Earlier, it was claimed that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia had played a key role in the release of Wing Commander Abhinandan. However, this was not confirmed.
Immediately after the Pulwama attack, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman visited Pakistan first and then India.
Adil al-Jubeir further said that a change of government in the United States would not affect bilateral relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States.
He said that relations between the two countries are strong and multifaceted.
“The Biden administration has made it clear that it is committed to protecting Saudi Arabia,” al-Jubeir said in an interview.
“The United States stands with us on external threats. In that case, I don’t think Biden’s arrival will affect our relationship. ”
“The relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia is 80 years old,” he added. This relationship is important for global security and stability.
“We have mutual economic interests. Together we are fighting terrorism and extremism.”
Adel al-Jubeir insisted that some Arab countries normalized the relations with Israel but Saudi Arabia is not doing that and they want a two-state solution based on Arab peace initiatives and relevant UN resolutions.
