Crown Prince Says Saudi Arabia on ‘Islamic Path,’ Arab News Says

June 24 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz said the kingdom will remain on its “Islamic path without deviation,” Arab News cited him as saying.

Salman, who also serves as defense minister, said he would try to strengthen the kingdom’s security and stability, the Jeddah-based newspaper reported. The crown prince made the comments as princes, Islamic scholars and senior military officials pledged their allegiance to him, the newspaper said.

King Abdullah appointed Salman as crown prince on June 18 after his predecessor Nayef bin Abdulaziz died in Geneva two days earlier.
