He said Qatar supports the financing of extremist groups … and Iran’s activities are a challenge for the region


The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Member of the Council of Ministers, Adel Al-Jubeir, addressed the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, which devoted a special session to conducting a public debate on relations between Saudi Arabia and the European Union.

In detail, the session was attended by Saudi Ambassador to the European Union, Ambassador Saad Al-Arifi, and the Director General of the Office of the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Member of the Council of Ministers Ambassador Khalid bin Mosaed Al-Anqari.

The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Legislative Council David Maxter welcomed the Minister Al-Jubeir, stressing the importance of relations between Saudi Arabia and the European Union, noting the most important issues and topics discussed during the session.

He said: The European Parliament is following the escalating and volatile tension between Iran and the United States. Reducing escalation appears necessary.

He added: Parliament also wants to know ways to resolve the situation in Yemen, and the developments of blogger Raif Badawi, who was previously assigned to Parliament by the Sakharov Prize for Human Rights.

In his intervention before the deputies, Minister Al-Jubeir said: The matter concerns a region that makes any inspection or approach difficult, which is the crossroads of three religions, three continents, and several challenges from Palestine to Iraq through Iran’s activities, the situation in Yemen, the Horn of Africa, Afghanistan and Syria, and so on.

He added that Saudi Arabia wants to face all these challenges, focus on its internal growth, work towards the success of Vision 2030, reduce dependence on oil, establish an advanced educational system, combat extremism, establish a tolerant society, and provide opportunities for youth.

He said: We want to make Saudi Arabia stable and prosperous, and less vulnerable to instability than its neighbors.

He explained that Saudi Arabia has succeeded in achieving important achievements for the benefit of women in various sectors, and empowering them with their rights.

Minister Al-Jubeir said: We want to put an end to every extremism to put in place a tolerance regime, and for the world to see our society as a modern and tolerant society. We hope to accelerate our work to advance the interests of the Saudis.

He added: We stand on the results of our policy, as there has been an increase in foreign investment, and an increase in the number of foreign companies operating in Saudi Arabia, which reflects actual confidence in the reform process.

On Qatar, Minister Al-Jubeir said: Qatar supports the financing of extremist groups, such as Hezbollah. We have problems with Qatar because it interferes in our affairs. Its media are a beacon to promote hate speech.

He added: The Qatari brothers have to change their behavior, and Saudi Arabia has worked to preserve as much as possible the functioning of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Regarding the citizen Raef Badawi, he said: It is a matter for the Saudi judiciary, which is an independent judiciary. Saudi Arabia is not a banana republic, and it respects the judiciary.

A discussion took place between the Minister and the European Representatives, as it touched on a number of issues related to the regional situation, the situation in Yemen, and the human rights dossier.

Minister Al-Jubeir emphasized that Saudi Arabia does not receive any lessons from anyone, and does not give lessons to anyone, but we are friends and allies, but a sovereign state cannot be tried without sufficient information and data.

On Turkey, he said: Turkey is an important country, and we have serious economic relations with it, but it interferes in Syria’s affairs and Libya’s affairs. We hope to continue relations with her, and be a responsible member, contributing to stability.
