Saudi Arabia says its good relations with Russia would benefit all

Faisal bin Farhan

ATHENS : Saudi Arabia said Saturday that its good relations with Russia would benefit all.

Speaking at a panel of the Munich Security Conference 2023 on the geostrategic role of Middle Eastern countries, Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan reiterated that his country maintains a dialogue with Kyiv and Moscow and sees a willingness in the two warring parties.


But issues between Ukraine and Russia are complex, he said.

“The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), of which we are a part, is unified in supporting dialogue as a means to resolve the problem,” he said.

Regarding the nuclear deal with Iran, he said GCC countries want to have a say in the matter.

“We want to return to the nuclear agreement, but with a comprehensive view and with Gulf participation,” he said, and warned that Iran’s obtaining nuclear weapons would prompt other countries to seek options to counter that reality.  — AA
