Speaking during the Lecture Series organized by the Foreign Service Institute of the Maldives (FOSIM), Ambassador Abdullah Hameed, Ambassador of the Republic of Maldives to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, discussed the various aspects of the Maldives’ relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Ranging from economic assistance to close cultural ties due to the shared Islamic faith, Maldives and Saudi Arabia share a deep bilateral relationship, which has been further cemented through high level visits by both countries. Ambassador Hameed also explored the key initiatives being undertaken by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud’s government and its impact on Saudi society and its economy.

FOSIM Lecture Series features Maldivian Ambassadors serving overseas, and aims to foster greater understanding about key development partners among the staff of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
