The Saudi Cabinet has lauded the Presidency of State Security for its work in identifying and arresting the suspected members of a terror cell in the Kingdom, Arab News reported on Wednesday.

Among those who were arrested allegedly trained at sites in Iran run by the country's Revolutionary Guards. A cache of weapons and explosives was also seized at a house and farm.

Cabinet members expressed their appreciation for the efforts of the presidency's employees in tracking down those who threaten the security and stability of the Kingdom and the safety of those who live there.

Majid Al Qasabi, the acting minister of media, said that while assessing the latest regional and international developments, cabinet members endorsed the Kingdom's call during the recent International Atomic Energy Agency General Conference for the international community to adopt a firm approach towards Iran, and take measures to address its violations of international agreements relating to its nuclear-research programme. They also reiterated Saudi support for such efforts, in partnership with the international community, to make the Middle East a nuclear weapon-free zone.

The virtual meeting was chaired by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, who started off by passing on his condolences and sympathy to the people of Kuwait and the family of its late Emir, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, who passed away on Tuesday. He also congratulated Sheikh Sabah's successor, Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmad Al Sabah.
