Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, expressed his sympathy to the American people at the death of senior Republican Senator John McCain.
"My sincere condolences to the American people for the loss of John McCain, the American hero who has dedicated his life to serving his country and promoting global peace and security," said Prince Khaled in a tweet via his official Twitter account.
"John McCain was a good friend of the kingdom, a respectable and truly reliable statesman, we will miss him," he added.
John McCain died on Saturday at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer.
Sen. John S. Kennedy, the third senator, died at 16:28 on August 25, 2018, the Republican Senator's office said in a statement.
The McCain family attributed death to his decision to stop the treatment of the malignant disease.
The Arizona senator was struck by gliallastoma, a very aggressive form of brain cancer.
