(Sputnik) The new US presidential administration includes a number of experienced professionals and could contribute to settlement of many world problems, Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel Jubeir said Sunday at a time the administration is facing huge criticism for being a failure in the history of the US.
He added that the US President Donald Trump’s administration is “one of the biggest factors” that will help resolve many challenges, adding that he is very optimistic.
“We have one of the biggest factors, I think, that will have to resolve many of these challenges, [and it] is the new American administration. Yes, I am very optimistic about the Trump administration… When we look at the composition of the Cabinet and the personalities that he appointed: Secretary of Defense [James Mattis], Secretary of State [Rex Tillerson], Secretary of Homeland Security [John Kelly]… Secretary of Treasury [Steven Mnuchin]. These are very experienced, highly-skilled, highly-capable individuals,” Jubeir said, speaking at the Munich Security Conference (MSC).
Earlier, the Saudi Arabian oil minister said that Riyadh and Washington “cannot afford not to work together.”
