New Saudi Arabian embassy in Oslo

Saudi Arabia has opened an Embassy in Oslo, and the new ambassador was welcomed by Foreign Minister of Foreign Affairs Espen Barth Eide.

Eide adressed Saudi Arabia's Minister of State for foreign affairs Dr Nizar Bin Obaid Madani, and the new Ambassador Khalid Al-Nafisee:

- I have no doubt that your permanent presence here in Oslo will be a significant contribution to the deepening of our bilateral ties. I am grateful that the leadership of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given us this opportunity to strengthen our friendly relations, Eide said.

-  There have been diplomatic ties between our countries since 1961. Fifteen years later, in 1976, we opened the Norwegian Embassy in Saudi Arabia (in Jeddah, and in 1985 it moved to Riyadh). Throughout these years, maintaining good relations between our countries has been a priority, in order to continue our constructive dialogue in several fields.

- One such area is of course the oil and energy sector: Saudi Arabia plays a crucial role in the global oil market. As energy producing countries and world-leading energy exporters, our two countries share expertise and experience in the petroleum sector, and increasingly also in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

- We also share a fundamental belief in the need for greater global stability. We share the view that, in order to bring about stability, international efforts and compromises are necessary. Saudi Arabia is by far the most important swing producer in OPEC, and your country plays a stabilising role that will help to revitalise the global economy. This role is of the utmost importance to all oil producers, including Norway, the Norwegian Foreign Minister said.
