:: Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Britain praised relations with the UK at a national day celebration in London on Monday.

Prince Khalid bin Bandar also said the Kingdom would be showing a lot more of “what we have to offer” in the coming years.

Arab and international diplomats and British and Saudi officials came together with Saudi citizens for the celebration of the 89th National Day at Lancaster House in the West End of London.

It was the first time Prince Khalid, who was appointed an ambassador in July, has hosted the national day ceremony in the UK’s capital.

The ambassador said the “relationship between Saudi Arabia and the UK goes back before the 89 years since the creation of the Kingdom, and we have enhanced and extended vast development to improve the relationship between our two great countries.”

Prince Khalid also gave a special thanks “in the true spirit of a national united front” to Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabian Airlines and the Misk Foundation, who supported the ceremony.

“They are among the best of Saudi Arabia, but not all that you can get from Saudi Arabia, and for the next few years, we’ll be showing you what we can do and what we have to offer,” he added.

Khaled Al-Duwaisan, Kuwait’s ambassador to the UK and dean of the diplomatic corps, said it was an honor to be among his Saudi friends at the event.

“Saudi Arabia achieved great progress and prosperity to its people. It is the base of stability in our area as Saudi Arabia is the biggest Gulf state with their origin and their location. We congratulate them for this day because it is our celebration, not just their celebration,” he told News Agency.

The Mayor of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Will Pascall, expressed his great honor to be invited to celebrate the national day.

“My congratulations go to the king, the crown prince and all the people in Saudi Arabia,” he told News Agency.
