Saudi Foreign Minister talks with his Dutch counterpart


Riyadh – On Thursday, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan and Dutch Foreign Minister Wopke Hoekstra met to discuss the state of relations between the two countries.

The two discussed how to advance their areas of cooperation to benefit both nations’ interests during the meeting.

The Russian-Ukrainian issue and global initiatives to find a political solution in order to achieve peace and security were among the regional and global topics that the ministers also reviewed.
Saud Al-Sati, the deputy minister for political affairs at the ministry of foreign affairs, was present at the meeting between the two foreign ministers.

The most recent meeting between the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and the Netherlands took place on February 18 outside the Munich Security Conference in Germany.
The oil tanker FSO Safer, which is moored 4.8 nautical miles off the coast of Yemen’s Hodeidah governorate and has been deteriorating and could result in a massive oil spill or explosion, was the topic of a phone call between Prince Faisal and Hoekstra on May 31.

Two nations that support UN efforts to address the environmental and humanitarian dangers posed by Yemen’s Safer oil tanker in the Red Sea are Saudi Arabia and the Netherlands.
For the first stage of the salvage operation, the Kingdom has donated $10 million and the Netherlands has contributed $7 million.
