Saudi Arabia has long been an important player in the Middle East, but the kingdom has also been an increasingly regional power since the 1980s, when it seized control of much of Iraq and Afghanistan and expanded its influence in neighbouring Iran.
Now, the kingdom is looking to diversify its regional footprint.
Saudi Arabia is the world’s top oil exporter and one of the world of oil.
It also holds the biggest reserves of crude oil and natural gas in the world.
Saudi King Salman was born in 1932, the son of the country’s King Abdullah, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia.
The King, a keen football player, was a successful businessman who was anointed the Saudi King by King Fahd in 1954.
He later became the countrys richest man.
In 1954, the king gave his name to the Saudi kingdom.
The kingdom’s constitution is based on the constitution of 1614 which was written by the French, and was ratified by the parliament in the year 2047.
In the year 2020, the King’s grandson, Mohammed bin Salman, took the throne.
Saudi-led efforts to restore stability have been a cornerstone of the kingdoms strategy of regionalisation.
Since 1979, the Saudi government has been engaged in an international war against the Islamic State group, also known as Daesh, which it says is a threat to its interests and national security.
The Saudi government also supported anti-government protests in neighbouring Yemen, which have been the scene of several civil wars and have claimed thousands of lives.
In 2016, the US and others accused the Saudi-backed government of trying to destabilise the Middle Eastern country by sponsoring terrorism.
The US and Saudi Arabia are also involved in a war in Yemen over the use of missiles and drones by Iran.
In April, the UN Security Council passed a resolution that called on Saudi Arabia to stop its support for the Houthi rebels in Yemen, and called for a “just transition” to a political process in the country.
However, the resolution did not specifically mention the kingdom.
Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said in October that the kingdom did not support terrorism and had not carried out terrorist attacks, adding that it was necessary to change the regional context in order to avoid creating problems.
In 2018, the Kingdom’s Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal met with the head of the US Central Command (CENTCOM), Gen. Joseph Votel, in Riyadh to discuss Yemen and Iran.
The meeting was held after the US-led coalition intervened in Yemen to support the government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who was forced to flee his country after a Saudi-supported Houthi uprising toppled his government.
