The Saudi cabinet on Tuesday hailed US President Joe Biden’s commitment to supporting the security of the kingdom and the Gulf region.

Official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said the cabinet, during a session chaired by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, lauded president Biden’s adherence to defending the kingdom’s territories, protecting its citizens, securing its defense requirements, bolstering joint efforts to safeguard security and stability of the country and the region.

The government affirmed keenness on tackling causes of escalation in the region and supporting the US Administration’s efforts to prevent Iran from possessing nuclear arms.

Moreover, the cabinet affirmed the necessity of joint action to face annihilating acts by “Iran’s arms.” The cabinet also valued condemnations by sisterly, friendly states, international and regional organizations of the hostile bid to target passengers and workers at Abha airport in southern Saudi Arabia. This hostile attempt was tantamount to a breach of international law, a war crime perpetrated by the Iran-backed Houthi militias that have adamantly neglected calls for peace.

The official statement also noted the kingdom’s resolve to reach a political full-scale solution to the Yemeni question according to the three references; the Gulf initiative, the national dialogue, and the Security Council resolution 2216. It also affirmed commitment to secure humanitarian aid for the Yemeni people and reconstruct the country.
