The CIA handed the Crown Prince the medal for ‘his distinct intelligence-related counter-terrorism work and his contributions to ensure international peace and security’.
In a press statement, the Crown Prince said that he appreciated the CIA honor.
“We, God willing, continue to confront terrorism and extremism everywhere, and with thanks to God we have managed to thwart many terrorist plots from occurring.”
“We are surrounded by areas of conflict, and we were the first affected by terrorism from various sources, but we are equipped to combat terror in any place and under any circumstances.”
