Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, said on Wednesday that the kingdom’s vision for the future was “greater than any short term political difference.”

Commenting on a statements given by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman earlier in the day, at the Riyadh-held Future Investment Initiative forum, Prince Khalid said in comments posted on Twitter:

“KSA’s vision for the region’s future, as articulated by the Crown Prince, is to become a model in development and achieve prosperity for people of the Middle East through bringing the region to the forefront of the world; a vision greater than any short term political difference.

“The Crown Prince reaffirmed his deep faith in the great Saudi people in facing challenges and continuing the journey of development and modernization; to achieve prosperity for our people and the peoples of the region, in line with the Kingdom’s #Vision2030.”

Prince Khalid also commented on the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“I send my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen who served his country for many years. May God rest his soul.”

He added: “HRH the Crown Prince stated today that the death of Jamal Khashoggi was painful to Saudis and many around the world, confirming that it is not consistent with KSA’s values and principles. #KSA is determined to achieve full accountability and justice.”
