Honorable Council;
The Kingdom was subject to attacks, in which 286 ballistic missiles and 289 drones were used, but all this did not affect the Kingdom's development process or the lives of its citizens and residents, thanks to the efficiency of our military and security sectors, who spare no effort to remain vigilant to defend the security of this country.
We, here, express our pride of the martyrs of duty and the injured who set the most excellent examples in sacrificing for the faith and the homeland, and we affirm that their families will always be the subject of our care and attention.
The sabotage attacks on our oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais, in which Iranian weapons were used, showed the level of frustration reached by the Iranian regime, uniting the world in the face of this criminal aggression. With the guidance of Allah Almighty and the help of our citizens, we succeeded to restore the production capacity of these facilities during a record time, proving to the world the ability of the Kingdom to meet oil demand in the event of any shortage, and its leading role in ensuring the security and stability of global energy supplies.
As regards Yemen, thanks to Allah almighty, the Kingdom's efforts were culminated in the signing of Riyadh Agreement between the Yemeni Government and the Southern Transitional Council, hopefully that it will open the door before broader understandings to reach a political solution to the crisis according to the three references and give room to the dear Yemeni people to foresee a future of security, stability, and development.
We have also the right to be proud of the success our country has achieved in eradicating the manifestations of extremism following successful confrontation and siege against the extremist ideology with all means in a way that enabled moderation concepts to become anew a distinguished feature of the Saudi society.
Dear brothers and sisters,
The Kingdom's presidency of the G20, starting next month, is another evidence of the pivotal role of the Kingdom in the global economy. We hope that the ambitious program, which we have instructed the authorities to prepare during the Kingdom's presidency of the G20, will contribute to the enhancement of its march to serve the interests of all countries and peoples.
