Washington — The Saudi Embassy in the Washington USA has welcomed the release of classified documents relating to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States.
“Since that horrific day 20 years ago, Saudi Arabia has consistently called for the release of all materials related to the attacks,” the embassy stated on Wednesday.
Saudi Arabia repeated its longstanding support for the full declassification of all documents and evidence relating to the US. investigation of the terrorist attacks, hoping that a full release of these documents will end the baseless allegations against the Kingdom.
No evidence has ever emerged that shows that the Saudi government or its officials had prior knowledge of the terrorist attack or were involved in any way.
The embassy pointed out that Saudi Arabia, alongside the US, has been Al Qaida’s top target, even before the Sept. 11 attacks.
Saudi Arabia is proud of its anti-terrorism record, including its efforts to thwart terrorist financing, its comprehensive strategies to counter extremist ideology in the public domain and online.
Once again, the embassy expressed its sympathies with the victims of the terrorist attack; Saudi Arabia understands the indescribable pain of the families who lost loved ones on that sad day. They remain in our thoughts and prayers.
