Prince Saudi al-Faisal, 72-year old nephew of King Abdullah, has been in post since 1975
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal successfully underwent abdominal surgery, according to a royal court statement posted on the Saudi Press Agency.
Al-Faisal suffered a minor blockage in the intestines due to adhesions resulting from previous surgery, the court said, adding that he is now in a “stable condition”.
The statement did not say where or when the operation took place.
The prince, a 72-year old nephew of ruler King Abdullah, has been Foreign Minister since 1975.
