Saudi Embassy hosts reception for National Day

  Ambassador Al-Jubeir with guests at National Day festivities

Saudi Ambassador to the US Adel A. Al-Jubeir hosted a reception at the embassy in Washington yesterday evening in honor of Saudi Arabia’s 77th National Day.

The guests included US officials, members of Congress, Arab and Muslim ambassadors, as well as leaders of the Saudi community and their families.

National Day, which marks the anniversary of the founding of the modern Kingdom by King Abdulaziz Al-Saud in 1932, is observed annually on September 23. This year’s reception was held early because September 23 falls during the holy month of Ramadan.
