Underpinning its dedication to Islam and unity among Islamic countries, Saudi Arabia hosted an international conference focused on strengthening collaboration among religious affairs departments, Ifta, and sheikhdoms worldwide. The conference aimed to counter radical ideologies and promote tolerance and coexistence among diverse populations.
The Cabinet meeting also addressed various issues and made several decisions, including approving a memorandum of understanding for energy cooperation with Argentina.
