Saudi Arabia’s Council of Ministers on Tuesday expressed the Kingdom’s full support for Cyprus’ sovereignty over its territories.
Cyprus is currently in a dispute with Turkey after Ankara continued to pursue oil and gas drilling in territory which is recognized as Cypriot.
After the meeting, which was chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the minister of media told Saudi Press Agency that the Kingdom was following the recent developments in the Middle East with great interest, adding that the Cabinet expressed its concerns for security and stability in the region.
Turki Al-Shabhanah also renewed the Kingdom’s call for all parties to abide by the UN Security Council’s resolutions to resolve any dispute, in order to maintain international peace and security and stability.
The Cabinet also discussed the “Women, Business, and the Law” report that was issued by the World Bank, and the Kingdom’s classification as the economy that made the biggest progress globally toward gender equality since 2017.
The Cabinet noted that the improvements made were the result of recent reforms in the laws and regulations made in Saudi Arabia under Vision 2030, the long-term plan to improve and diversify the country’s economy.
