Saudi and Eritrean foreign ministers meet to discuss bilateral and regional issues
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir on Sunday met Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh Mohammed in Jeddah.
The two foreign ministers discussed issues of mutual interest and the current regional and global developments.
Saudi Arabia and Eritrea enjoy historical and brotherly ties. Following the formation of the Anti-Terror Quartet (ATQ), comprising Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain, Eritrea sided with the group in support of its principled stand. It also stood firmly with the ATQ after it cut ties with Qatar in protest of its support to terrorist groups and Iran, which is openly flouting international laws by interfering in the internal affairs of the countries in the Middle East.
