“The outcomes of his visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are fruitful and constructive,” he added.

Sheikh Khaled confirmed that his talks with Prince Mohammed included various issues of mutual interest, especially in the field of existing military cooperation under the umbrella of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Member States in addition to his congratulations to Prince Mohammed bin Salman on the occasion of appointing him the Defense Minister.
