Saudi Charge d'Affaires, Walid Al-Bukhari, disclosed Saturday that "more than 20 project agreements have been drafted, pending the new government's formation for signature."

Al-Bukhari hoped for a "qualitative leap" in bilateral relations following the new cabinet formation, noting, "The Saudi Kingdom is keen on promoting its relations with Lebanon in various fields, with the Lebanese best interests at heart."

He added that his country aspires for "the finest relations with Lebanon based on mutual respect and joint benefits, and hopes for stability and a flourishing future for Lebanon."

Al-Bukhari's words came during a luncheon banquet held in his honor by the Lebanese-Saudi Business Council in Nabeh El-Safa this afternoon, in presence of political officials and prominent dignitaries.
