At the outset of the session, the King thanked Allah Almighty for the many blessings the Kingdom enjoys and the security, prosperity and great development it witnesses in all fields while preserving its constants derived from the Holy Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah.
The King said that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on the occasion of its 89th National Day, is proud of the announcement of the late founder King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud that unified the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the Holy Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah, as this unification continued with the efforts of his sons after him and the unity of citizens, where we have become proud of a national unity and a distinguished international position.
On this occasion, we thank the leaders and officials of sisterly and friendly countries and all officials and citizens of the Kingdom for their feelings and congratulations on this occasion, praying to Allah Almighty to help and guide us so that the Kingdom remains a strong fortress to serve Islam and Muslims, build and serve the Two Holy Mosques, serve the causes of Arab and Islamic nations, support justice and contribute to the establishment of security and stability throughout the world.

The King expressed his thanks and appreciation to the King of Bahrain, the Chinese President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan for their condemnation of the blatant attacks that targeted two Aramco plants, which represent a serious escalation and a major threat to the security and stability of the region and to the global oil market supplies.
