  • Saudi News

United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia John Abizaid and CEO of the Diplomatic Quarter General Authority Dr. Fahad Mushayt signed on Wednesday in Jeddah, an agreement for the purchase of land for US Embassy Riyadh’s new embassy compound, located in the Diplomatic Quarter

The agreement was signed during the consulate’s celebration of the 243rd year of American independence at its new location in Jeddah’s Al-Muhammadiya district.

The agreement will allow the US State Department to divert resources toward the construction and design of the new embassy.

Hosted by Abizaid and Consul General Ryan Gliha, the celebration’s guest of honor was Jeddah Gov. Prince Mishaal bin Majed bin Abdul Aziz.

Members of the American community, Saudi government officials and business leaders were in attendance.

Since 1945, the US and Saudi Arabia “have stood together in the face of common threats, advanced prosperity and economic growth in both our countries and forged bonds of friendship through countless exchanges and joint endeavors,” Abizaid said.
