DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s finance minister said on Wednesday that China “is very important for Saudi” and its largest trade partner, “but also the U.S. is a very important and strategic partner”.
“Our aim is really to bridge the divide, our aim is to be a force of communication and we are encouraging communication, whether it is China, the U.S. or others,” Mohammed al-Jadaan said, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
“We are playing our part and you can count on Saudi Arabia to continue playing that part,” he said.
