Condolences to the People of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the Death of King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud


BORN in 1923 to King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al-Saud, the first monarch and founder of modern Saudi Arabia, King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud ascended to the throne and became prime minister of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1982. When he died last Monday, he left his nation in a state of prosperity and security that speaks well of the service he has given his beloved country in more than four decades.

The late King Fahd started to serve his country as part of the Saudi delegation to the signing of the United Nations Charter in 1945. His exposure to international affairs early in his public service career allowed him to recognize the importance of addressing concerns involving nations through dialogue. In 1953, he was appointed as the first education minister of his nation and quickly laid the foundation for a nationwide school system that grew from 30,000 students in 1962 to over 3.2 million students today enrolled in seven universities, 83 colleges, and over 18,000 schools throughout the country.
