Riyadh Welcomes China’s Efforts to Promote Security in Middle East

BEIJING (Sputnik) – Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud held a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, and welcomed Beijing’s active efforts to promote peace and stability in the Middle East.

“The Saudi side welcomes the active role of China in protecting security in the Middle East region and welcomes China’s initiatives in these areas”, Farhan Al Saud said.

On Wednesday, Wang started his Middle East tour, which includes official visits to Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, as well as a working visit to Oman. His visit to Riyadh comes days after Saudi Arabia proposed a widespread UN-sponsored ceasefire in neighbouring conflict-torn Yemen – an initiative that has already been welcomed by Beijing.
