Saudi Arabia - Issue 198 - 08/Jun/1987

The end of the holy month of Ramadan occasioned a summary of Saudi Arabia's foreign policy from King Fahd and Crown Prince Abdullah. Celebrating the festival of 'Id al Fitr which concludes Ramadan, King Fahd delivered a television address which emphasised Saudi Arabia's chief external political concerns: Arab unity, the solidarity of the Muslim world, the resolution of the Iran-Iraq war, the conflict in Lebanon, the war in Afghanistan and - most of all - the Palestinian problem.
