King of Saudi Arabia looks forward to meeting Al-Kazemi “at the earliest opportunity”

The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, today, Wednesday, telephoned Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz to “check on his health.”

Al-Kazemi’s media office said in a statement, which was reported to Shafaq News, that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi made today a phone call with King Salman bin Abdulaziz, King of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to check on his health.

Al-Kazemi expressed his “sincere wishes to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for the safety and well-being”, according to the statement, which added that “King Salman bin Abdulaziz expressed his thanks and deep appreciation to Al-Kazemi for his noble brotherly feelings.

The statement indicated that King Salman “expressed his aspiration to meet Al-Kazemi in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the earliest opportunity.”

The media office of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi confirmed last Monday the postponement of a planned visit to Saudi Arabia due to an urgent health problem for King Salman Abdul Aziz Al Saud.

On Monday morning, the Saudi foreign minister announced the postponement of a scheduled visit of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to Riyadh, until King Salman was released from the hospital.

Today, Monday, the Saudi monarch, King Salman, entered the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh to perform some tests, according to a statement issued by the Royal Court.

The Saudi News Agency quoted a statement by the Royal Court that King Salman (84 years old) entered the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh to perform some tests due to an inflammation of the gallbladder. Source
