Saudi Arabia says reforms to be done according to internal needs
Saudi Arabia renewed Wednesday evening that "its desire to continue reforms" has emerged from the needs of its society and not in accordance with theories enforced from abroad.
This came in a speech delivered at the 60th session of the Human Rights Committee by Prince Dr. Turki bin Mohammad bin Saud Al-kabeer, the Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Political Affairs and Head of the International Organization Department.
"Despite international concerns about human rights, still there are some who try to feed extremism, racism, discrimination and ignore others' positive contributions to secure human rights," he said, according to SPA.
