Saudi Arabia has announced it is launching a National Security Center that will be linked to the royal court.

The announcement came as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz issued at least 45 royal decrees on Saturday night.
Among the decrees was the appointment of Mohammed bin Saleh al-Ghofaili as Saudi Arabia’s national security adviser.

“It is very important to launch this center in the current stage in order to protect the Kingdom and its borders and sovereignty.

The center will hopefully establish and maintain stability in Saudi Arabia,” Jameel AlTheyabi, editor-in-chief of Okaz newspaper, told Al Arabiya News Channel.
