The twenty-third of September marks the anniversary of the kingdom's unification at the hands of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al-Saud (may Allah bestow His mercy on him). It is a day when glories are renewed along with our love and loyalty to our beloved and generous country.
