Quotes

*"It would be incorrect to say that the history of U.S.-Saudi relations is only about oil. The relationship between our two countries is more complex and extensive than that and examples of cooperation in areas of mutual benefit are numerous. "
*"We believe that stability in world oil markets depends on having adequate spare production capacity for maintaining balance in the market. Saudi Arabia is committed to providing a major portion of the world's spare capacity."
*"I am quite optimistic about the future. Will there be challenges to overcome? My answer is yes. There are always challenges. Are we up to the task? Most certainly."
*"We work at it day in and day out, investing huge sums in the latest technologies, searching the world for the best talent, and then continuously training our workforce to meet the challenges of the new millennium."
