Lamle stated in an interview that the two countries were well-suited partners and stressed that they both acknowledged their reliance on each other.

KSA and Germany’s Growing Partnership in the Energy Sector

He said Germany became interested in KSA because of its abundant sunlight, oil, and wind. Germany, on the other hand, can provide valuable partnerships due to its advanced technology and know-how.

The envoy said that Germany has an interest in the success of Vision 2030. They further stated that hydrogen and green energy are the most vital projects for Germany and KSA to work on right now.

Lamle stated that the primary focus of Germany and KSA is on developing hydrogen and sustainable energy. He added that the Saudi energy minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, had positive discussions with political leaders and German companies during his recent visit to Germany, including Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

Over 100 companies expressed interest in attending the meeting between the Saudi minister to discuss business matters concerning KSA and Germany. During a visit to KSA in September, Scholz informed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that Germany was ready to offer technology and expertise to the Kingdom.

The German envoy reported that the crown prince was happy to learn that Germany is willing to help KSA achieve its development goals in 2030.

During their meeting, Lamle discussed bilateral issues, and they agreed to establish a structured dialogue in the future. He added that the conversation would be of a high standard and would focus on four main areas of interest. These areas include foreign policy, security policy, climate, and environment. In addition, Lamle stressed the importance of revitalizing the Joint Business Commission and identified it as the next necessary action.

According to Lamle, the foreign ministers met three times now, and he spoke positively about their recent visit on May 15. He specifically praised the good atmosphere and chemistry between them.

On the day of the meeting, the German aircraft scheduled to take off to Jeddah had to wait, as Dieter remembered. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) made preparations for the Arab League, which he said contributed to the complexity of the situation. He also commended the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs for its handling of the situation. Despite a two-hour delay in the plane, they were able to effectively accommodate the German visit.

Lamle added that the two foreign ministers talked about regional matters that are mutually important. These include the Kingdom’s diplomatic efforts in Yemen, as well as the progress between Saudi Arabia and Iran. He shared that Baerbock conveyed her gratitude to KSA for evacuating German citizens from Sudan. She also said that the Saudi authorities worked very well and that their actions were a success.

Conclusion

KSA and Germany’s partnership in the areas of hydrogen, energy, and climate shows their commitment to a sustainable future. The partnership takes advantage of KSA’s many assets and Germany’s strong technology and knowledge.
