In a speech to mark the occasion, Al-Ghufaili lauded the full-fledged support the armed forces, in general and the navy in particular, are enjoying from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who is the Commander-in-Chief of all the armed forces; HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, the Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, as well as HRH the Deputy Defense Minister to upgrade the preparedness of the navy to further enhance the maritime security on one hand and protect the country’s vital and strategic interests on the other.
