Jeddah, Muharram 16, 1440, September 26, 2018, SPA -- In recent months our relations have witnessed misunderstandings which stand in sharp contrast to our otherwise strong and strategic ties with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We sincerely regret this.
We should have been clearer in our communications and engagement in order to avoid such misunderstandings between Germany and the Kingdom.
We aim to close cooperation between our two countries and to this end seek to intensify our dialogue on a broad range of topics.
Saudi Arabia is a country that plays an immensely important role for peace and stability in the region and the world.
As there is a broad range of bilateral and international issues to discuss, we will do our best to make this partnership with the kingdom even stronger than before.
Considering our role in Europe and the world, improving our ties with Saudi Arabia will serve the interest of both nations and peoples.
