Saudi Crown Prince: We live in a time of change and opportunity

Published: Updated:

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said on Thursday that the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States has extended for many years and is built on trust and strategic partnership.

He was speaking at the inaugural KSA–USA Partnership Event dinner hosted by the Saudi embassy in Washington.

"In the Kingdom, we are in the process of change and seizing opportunities and we aspire to work with our partners," the crown prince said.

“Tonight we are celebrating over 70 years of military and security cooperation with the United States. Saudis and Americans have trained together and fought together to confront shared threats and to defend common interests. Our relationship with the United States is fundamental to security in the Middle East, and we are grateful for your support in building a better future together.

“My own brother and our Ambassador to the United States experienced this firsthand as a pilot training with the US Air Force. He often reminds me that policy may be made in Riyadh and Washington, but it is in training and then in battle where trust is built, where friendships are formed, and where unbreakable ties are forged,” he added.
