The Sultanate of Oman announced, on Tuesday, its support for the Saudi “Green Middle East” initiative, stressing that it addresses environmental challenges.
This came during a phone call made by Prince Muhammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Saudi Arabia, on Tuesday to Sultan Haitham bin Tariq, Sultan of Oman.
The two sides discussed the environmental challenges facing the region, their economic, social and health implications, and the qualitative initiatives contained in the declaration of the “Green Middle East” initiative that address these challenges through afforestation programs and clean energy using modern and innovative methods and new technologies.
Sultan Haitham bin Tariq welcomed the initiatives of the Saudi Crown Prince and the Sultanate of Oman’s support for all efforts made by the Kingdom in this regard.
Last Saturday, Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud announced that the “Saudi Green Initiative” and the “Green Middle East Initiative”, which will be launched soon, will draw the direction of the Kingdom and the region in protecting the land and nature.
The Saudi Crown Prince said, “As a leading global oil producer, we are fully aware of our share of the responsibility in advancing the fight against the climate crisis, and just as our pioneering role in stabilizing energy markets during the oil and gas era represents, we will work to lead the next green era.”
