“beyond this relationship between the two royal families saudi arabia is our most important partner in the arab world. the first thing to say is that our historic relationship with saudi arabia gave us an excellent start. we have been present in and with the country since its foundation friendship is defined by the energy time and effort both friends invest into the future of each other” he said.
