On behalf of the United States of America, I congratulate the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the occasion of its National Day.

The United States of America and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have shared eight decades of partnership, cooperation, and mutual friendship.  The strength of our ties has propelled our two nations’ prosperity and has underpinned the region’s security.  

We are expanding our collaboration, including in addressing the challenge of the climate crisis and supporting a strong international response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as fostering a broad global economic recovery.  We are working together to address shared security challenges and forge a future of peace and economic prosperity.   

My best wishes to the people of Saudi Arabia for a happy national day and a successful year ahead.
