​Dr. Mansour bin Nasser Al-Hawasi, MOH Deputy Minister for Executive Affairs, expressed his deep sorrow and grief over the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, affirming that, with the passing of Prince Sultan, the Kingdom lost an eminent pioneer and a symbol of fidelity, for he – May Allah bless his soul – was one of the dignified pillars of this great developmental advancement, in which he a colossal impact when he undertook the responsibility of developing and renovating all the sectors he was responsible for.

Dr. Al-Hawasi extended his most sincere condolence to the Cutodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, and His Royal Highness Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz, Second Deputy of Prime Minister, and Minister of Interior, as well as the Royal Family and the entire Saudi people, on the death of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense and Aviation and Inspector General.

Al-Hawasi said, “The absence of Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz was a great misfortune for the nation he contributed to building over the past decades. This country and its citizens owe much to him. Also, the Arab and Islamic world will not forget his great contributions and honorable stances.”
It did not escape Al-Hawasi's notice to shed light on the deceased Prince's keen interest in and direct support for the Kingdom's health sector, pointing out that Prince Sultan Charitable Foundation, through its various subsidiary divisions, specialized health centers spread out both within and without the kingdom, was an embodiment of such interest and such support. Prince Sultan Humanitarian City, affiliated to the foundation, is reckoned the largest medical entity in the Middle East in the field of medical rehabilitation, thanks to it numerous medical curative and rehabilitative centers (including the heart, kidney and tumor centers spread out in the Kingdom). Such centers helped – thanks to Allah's guidance and the princes efforts – relieve the suffering of many patients. Besides, Al-Hawasi added, it should not be forgotten how generous the prince was with charities, as well as people in need.
He went on to say, “As long as the history acknowledges gratitude for those devoted their lives for the service of their nations, the late Crown Prince's name (Prince of Humanities), will be forever engraved in the memory of this country. The Kingdom and its people owe a lot to this man who gave tirelessly, and endlessly.”

In conclusion, Al-Mazrou' prayed for Allah to bestow His mercy and blessings upon the deceased Crown Prince, accept him in His Paradise, and grant us patience and fortitude.
