He said that President Trump has ‘great understanding‘ when it comes to the Middle East and is appreciative of his concern for relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States.
Salman continued to say that he completely understood why there was a travel ban between the United States and the Muslim-majority countries, and that he understood this measure was not an attempt to ban people because of their religion, but because of the current political climate in the Middle East.
From Daily Caller:
A statement released by the Saudi leader was effusive in its praise for the U.S. president’s “great understanding” of geo-political problems in the Middle East and his concern for better relations with the Saudi people.
Salman also agreed with Trump’s efforts to enforce a temporary travel ban on visitors to the U.S. that includes countries with a Muslim-majority population.
“Saudi Arabia does not believe that this measure is targeting Muslim countries or the religion of Islam. This measure is a sovereign decision aimed at preventing terrorists from entering the United States of America. President Trump expressed his deep respect for the Religion of Islam, considering it one of the divine religions that came with great human principles kidnapped by radical groups,” he said.
