Thank you very much. It is a pleasure for me to be in Jeddah, for the second time in an official visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the last year. We meet very often in multilateral meetings and regional events, but it is always a pleasure for me to back for an official visit. I understand that it is also a special time, on the eve of GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) Summit that is going to be particularly important. So I am particularly glad to be here in this moment.

The indictment of the Egyptian Press Syndicate's Head, Secretary-General and Undersecretary is a worrying development that follows the unprecedented raid of the Egyptian security forces on the Press Syndicate's building earlier this month.
