Jeddah – Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has said that every country has different values that need respect. During their bilateral meeting, the Crown Prince responded to US President Joe Biden’s remarks on the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi incident.
A Saudi source at the bilateral talks between the two leaders reported that Biden’s remarks on the Khashoggi issue were quick.

In his reply, the Crown Prince noted that the Kingdom had enforced measures to prevent such mistakes.
Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman remarked that these mistakes happen in any country, including the US. The Prince also drew on errors committed by the United States of America.
He pointed out the Abu Ghraib prison incident in Iraq, among others, stressing that the most important thing is how these countries deal with such mistakes and take measures to prevent them from happening.
The Crown Prince also indicated the incident of the killing of the Palestinian-American journalist Shereen Abu Aqleh. He inquired into the measures taken by the US and other countries regarding this incidence.
The Crown Prince said it is highly significant to spread values through dialogue. He emphasized that the attempt to set values by force on any country is counterproductive.
He pointed out what happened in Iraq and Afghanistan, where the United States failed to achieve any success.
“Globally, and especially the United States and Saudi Arabia, agree on many values and differ on many. However, the right and good values and principles always affect the people of other countries.
This is particularly evident in the interdependence of the people globally,” he pointed out.

The Crown Prince reaffirmed the importance of understanding that every country has different values that must be respected.
He gave an example that if the United States of America deals only with countries that share 100 percent of the same values and principles, then it will have no countries to deal with except NATO countries.
The Crown Prince again stressed the need for the peaceful coexistence of countries and peoples despite the differences that exist among them in their day-to-day life.
