Al-Moqbil said “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in its presidency of the Executive Council, worked to oversee the interests of the countries by listening to their proposals, observations, and visions to ensure that they are reflected on the ground and implemented in stages. The countries will work with greater effort and higher interest in taking care of the organization's interests".
