The Saudi side has long denied relevant allegations.

According to reports, 15 of the 19 “9.11” terrorist attack hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. The 16-page document released by the FBI this time outlines the connection between the hijackers and Saudi “associates”, but there is no evidence that the Riyadh government was involved in the attack that killed nearly 3,000 people.

Saudi Arabia has long stated that it played no role in the attack. The Saudi Embassy in the United States said on September 8 that Saudi Arabia “welcomes” the release of documents related to the “9.11” terrorist attacks.

The Saudi Embassy in the United States stated in a statement: “There is no evidence that the Saudi government or its officials are aware of the terrorist attack or participated in its planning or execution in any way. Anything about Saudi participation in 2001 The allegations of the September 11 attacks are absolutely wrong.”

After the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, the United States and its allies claimed that the Afghan Taliban refused to hand over the leader of the “Al Qaeda” organization. Osama bin Laden launched a military attack on Afghanistan in early October of that year, overthrowing the Taliban regime and garrisoning for a long time. On May 1, 2011, bin Laden was shot dead by the US military.
