Statement issued by Princess Haifa Al-Faisal
HRH Princess Haifa Al-Faisal, wife of HRH Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States, today said:

“I heard U.S. lawmakers in the American media today say that money that I have donated to a needy Saudi family living in the United States was transferred to two Saudi 9-11 terrorists.

"My father, King Faisal, was killed in a terrorist act in 1975. I find that accusations that I contributed funds to terrorists outrageous and completely irresponsible.

"This is the time for people to come together to combat the scourge of terrorism so that others will not suffer the loss of loved ones.”
