King Salman given award for services to Arab security

RIYADH: King Salman was given the Prince Naif Award for Arab Security on Monday for his services to the security of the Arab community, Saudi Press Agency reported.


The Arab Interior Ministers Council conferred the award and it was received by the Kingdom’s Interior Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud in Tunis during a council meeting.


The minister said the meeting was being held at a time when the Palestinian people are experiencing an unstable security situation which has caused the suffering of thousands of

children, women, and the elderly.


He said that the council, since its inception, is keen to achieve security for Arabs and bring about stability and development.


Prince Abdulaziz said the world is witnessing developments in cyber crime, the misuse of artificial intelligence, and advanced drug trafficking methods.


These developments have “created fertile ground for the spread of multiple types of organized crime,” armed organizations, and terrorist groups which requires developing plans to invest in infrastructure and

support development, education, and capacity building to confront these threats.


He added that Arab coordination to deal with these threats is important in order to mitigate the possible negative repercussions from such threats.
