Prince Bandar again speaks out against terrorism

Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, addressing a meeting of the World Affairs Council in San Francisco yesterday, reiterated Saudi Arabia's staunch stand against terrorism, stressing that the Kingdom has never provided any kind of support for terrorists, overtly or otherwise, and denouncing incorrect media reports on this. Describing the measures taken by the Kingdom to combat terrorism, he stressed that they had been taken not in order to satisfy the United States of America, but because terrorism violates the core of the Islamic religion.
