RIYADH: Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz said in an address marking the start of the holy month of Ramazan that his country will stand in the way of sectarianism and will not allow sedition.

 “We also emphasize that our confidence in the Saudi citizen has no limits. We will not tolerate those who are negligent, and we will hold accountable whoever attempts to undermine our security and our religious and national values,” King Salman said.

The monarch added that that Ramazan should be used to boost religious and professional commitments.

Also in celebration of the Holy month of Ramazan, King Salman sent cables of congratulations to leaders of Islamic countries, according to SPA.
