Ambassador's message of condolence following the passing away of HRH Crown Prince Naif Bin Abdulaziz
I was saddened to learn the passing away of HRH Prince Naif bin Abddulaziz Crown Prince, Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior. With deep grief and sorrow we received the news, and we cannot in this situation help extending our deep condolences and sincere sympathy to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al Saud and to the Royal Family and the Saudi People.
HRH Prince Naif made great contributions to the Kingdom’s peace development. He was a great leader, devoting himself to his country and his people. Moreover, since his visit to Japan in 1987 as Minister of Interior, he made the utmost effort to enhance bilateral relation between Saudi Arabia and Japan.
I hope that the Kingdom and the Saudi People will go through this painful challenge and will continue the process of development and prosperity.
