Sierra Leone’s Foreign Minister Timothy Kabba and his Saudi counterpart, Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah, reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening bilateral relations between their nations.

This follows a telephone between Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah and Sierra Leone Foreign Minister Musa Kabba on Thursday.

The ministers discussed ways to expand cooperation in various fields, including trade, investment, education, and culture. They also exchanged views on recent developments and issues of mutual concern.

This phone call builds upon the momentum generated during President Julius Maada Bio’s visit to Saudi Arabia in November 2023, where both countries signed a General Cooperation Agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding on Political Consultations.

While specific details of the ministers’ conversation haven’t been released, this high-level dialogue highlights the growing partnership between Sierra Leone and Saudi Arabia. Both nations stand to benefit from increased collaboration in areas of mutual interest, potentially leading to economic growth, cultural exchange, and improved regional stability.
