She also said, "The Kingdom has invested in its citizens’ sons and daughters and exerted precious efforts. The sons and daughters of this country have conducted many achievements in all fields.

He added, “We came here to celebrate with you the heritage, culture and history through our participation in this festival, raising the same slogan of this year’s edition ‘Faithfulness and Loyalty’ which are two of the most important values of Arab society.”
Al -Hammadi praised the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosque’s attitudes towards the dangers that threaten the Arab nation. He said, "Without your firmness and determination and your response to the various conspiracies targeting the Arab countries, the wolves would attack our countries."
