On Thursday 22 September the 92nd National day of Saudi Arabia was celebrated at the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria.
His Excellency Sultan Al-Angari welcomed and addressed his guests which included Police Commissioner Bheki Cele, MPs and the diplomatic corps.

The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Pretoria was established in 1997. The formalisation of the relationship between the two countries dates back to November 1994 when former President Nelson Mandela went on an official visit to the Kingdom.

The Kingdom has gone on to donate 10 billion dollars to South Africa and has also contributed significantly to the solar power project in the Northern Cape.
