Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud has said that his country stands behind Islamic causes across the world.
“We confirm that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia stands with all its might behind the Islamic causes in general and we are fully ready for assistance and cooperation with your sisterly country as regards any effort or movement that serves Muslims' issues,” King Salman said in a speech on Monday during a dinner banquet held by Malaysia’s monarch.
The visit to Malaysia is the first by a Saudi king to Malaysia in more than a decade.
It is part of a month-long Asia tour that will see him visit Indonesia, Brunei, Japan, China, the Maldives and Jordan “to meet with the leaders of those countries to discuss bilateral relations and regional and international issues of common concern,” a royal court statement carried on Saudi Arabia’s state media SPA reported.
