On this blessed day 13 Muharram 1440 AH / 23 September, 2018, the eighty-eighth anniversary of the unification of this great nation, at the hands of the founding King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud, may Allah bless him. The people of this nation united in a national bond which changed the face of history in the Arabian Peninsula around the banner of monotheism, and built under this banner a great nation that has the honor to serve the two Holy Mosques, that occupied a global position that will always stay in the course of history and achievements.
Commemorating the National Day is a great occasion in which we all recall the sacrifices made by our parents and grandparents in order to preserve our great gains and the security, peace, prosperity and advancement we enjoy.
On this day and more than eight decades ago, this great nation has proudly bore the name of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia after a great national epic national struggle led by King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Faisal Al Saud, may Allah have mercy on him. Succeeded in uniting this vast land on strong basis and a firm approach. It was later completed by the kings of this country: King Saud, Faisal, Khaled, Fahad and Abdullah may Allah have mercy on them all.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, during the reign of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, has made great achievements and transformations witnessed by the whole world in reference to the new face of this country, carried by vision 2030 which is executed by HRH the Crown Prince, First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Muhammad bin Salman and under the guidance of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
The National Anti-Corruption Commission has received a lot of support from the leadership. Many directives and orders have been issued which had a great impact on the promotion of its work, exercise of its functions and the achievement of its objectives on which it was established.
The continuous orders of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, to fight corruption in all its forms, intolerance of corrupt practices, preservation of public funds and punish those who wrong do, had the greatest impact on ensuring the realization of the Kingdom's Vision 2030, which seeks to build comprehensive and productive sources of income and employ available resources for investment, through programs and projects that contribute to the nation in all its human and natural components, and are directly reflected on Saudi citizens, the first development goal, and to develop and build a promising future for our future generations.
In conclusion, I ask Allah to preserve this nation under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and HRH the Crown Prince, and to provide them with his help and support to serve our precious country, and may Allah preserve our soldiers who defend our borders.
