Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Prime Minister and Commander of the National Guard, has sent a cable of congratulations to U.S. President George W. Bush on the occasion of July 4, the U.S. Independence Day, sending his best wishes to the President and to the American people and wishing them progress and prosperity. He also vowed to continue the campaign to “uproot all factors of destruction and terrorism” for the benefit of mankind.
"We avail ourselves of this opportunity", the Crown Prince said in his cable, to reaffirm, once again, "our determination to proceed with whatever serves humanity and leads to global peace and stability. This goal can only be achieved, first, through trust in God; and second, through the determination of honest people of the world who vow to enhance whatever it takes to promote peace and honorable living for all peoples of the world”.
Crown Prince Abdullah also expressed his appreciation of the pivotal role the United States plays in fighting terrorism and reaffirmed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is continuing to work with its friends to uproot all factors of destruction and terrorism.
The Crown Prince added that President Bush’s promotion of the Middle East peace process depends on God first, and on on his “wisdom and experience in reaching a final solution to this thorny issue. We are looking forward to this noble goal which is the objective of all peace loving people of the world." He concluded by saying the “historical relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States stands as evidence of the depth of the relations between our two peoples and countries for the benefit all".
