I am deeply saddened by the passing of Crown Prince Nayif bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud. I want to express my condolences to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the family of Crown Prince Naif, and the people of Saudi Arabia. He devoted his life to the security of Saudi Arabia and its fight against extremism. Crown Prince Naif was a key and valued partner for the United States, and he was a dedicated and courageous leader for Saudi Arabia. I will personally miss Crown Prince Naif and his pivotal role in enhancing the bilateral relationship between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
