Riyadh: In his first major policy speech since assuming the throne in January, Saudi King Salman has vowed that the kingdom will defend Arab and Muslim causes.

He also promised continuity and development despite low oil prices, but called on Saudi citizens, businessmen and officials to do their part to improve the country.

He also spoke about the need to fight corruption, urged businessmen to help in job creation and said security is a key pillar of his administrative priorities.

Salman delivered the 10-minute speech from the capital Riyadh late Tuesday. He was seated during the speech, reading from a paper. Next to him were his crown prince and deputy crown prince.

Women were shown seated in the hall where he spoke, though segregated and behind the men who were invited.
