Saudi Arabia says while it welcomes the release of classified documents related to the terror attacks on 11 September 2001, any allegations that the Kingdom was involved in the attacks is false.
In a statement, the Saudi Arabian embassy in the US says since the attacks twenty years ago, it has always called for all materials related to the United States investigation to be released and has advocated for transparency surrounding the tragedy.
The embassy says past investigations including the 9/11 Commission has revealed that the Saudi Government or its officials had no previous knowledge of the terrorist attack or involved in its planning and execution.
“Any allegation that Saudi Arabia is complicit in the September 11 attacks is categorically false. As the administrations of the past four US Presidents have attested, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has unwaveringly condemned and denounced the deplorable crimes that took place against the United States, its close ally and partner.”
Saudi Arabia says it hopes that the full release of the 9/11 documents will end the allegations against the Kingdom “once and for all.”
