Dammam, Asharq Al-Awsat- Saudi Interior Minister Prince Naif Bin Abdulaziz has stressed to Asharq Al-Awsat that the advice program his ministry is implementing with detainees in Saudi jails who were influenced by the misguided ideology is continuing. Answering a question about the security agreement which Saudi Arabia signed with the United States for protecting the oil installations, Prince Naif said, “The Americans’ role is confined to technical operations, as the agreement stipulates. As to protecting Saudi oil installations, only God and then the Saudis protect them.”

The Saudi interior minister delivered a speech when he sponsored the graduation of the 38th batch of students from the King Fahd Petroleum and Minerals University last night in Dhahran, Eastern Province. He said education without faith is no less dangerous than ignorance and added, “The greatest thing that represents our renaissance is that it is based on religious values.” He went on to say that “the human is the pivot of development and its purpose and this is why schools and universities proliferated all over the homeland”, adding that the curricula have been linked to the labor market.
