I thank the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd, and HRH Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for nominating me for the post of Ambassador to the US.

It was an honour to be appointed as Ambassador to the UK two and a half years ago and it has been a position I have much enjoyed where I have made many new friends.


I will make every effort to serve my country faithfully and as well in the US as I have in the UK. I have enjoyed maintaining and developing a strong relationship with Britain and appreciate the importance of this new post in the US and the importance of maintaining and developing good relations with the US.
