I extend best wishes to the people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as you commemorate your National Day on September 23.
The United States greatly values the enduring relationship we have had with Saudi Arabia over the past eight decades. On my visit to the Kingdom in June, I saw firsthand the progress we have made and are continuing to make across a range of shared priorities. Working together, we are tackling important regional and global challenges to advance a durable peace in Yemen, end the devastating conflict in Sudan, negotiate a just and durable peace in Ukraine, and increase our cooperation in important new endeavors, including in telecommunications and clean energy.
The United States looks forward to deepening the strategic partnership with our Saudi friends in the coming year to ensure greater stability and prosperity for our people and the world.
