Saudi leaders congratulate PM Karins after new Latvian government approved
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman congratulated Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins after a new government was approved by lawmakers this week, the Saudi Press Agency reported early on Saturday.
The king and crown prince sent cables to the prime minister, wishing success and prosperity for Latvia and its people.
A majority in Latvia’s parliament on Wednesday voted to confirm the country’s proposed coalition government, allowing Karins to stay in power following his win in the October general election.
The centre-right New Unity party headed by Karins, a prominent Russia critic, is supported by the conservative National Alliance and the United List of smaller parties for a slim majority.
