Riyadh — Saudi Arabia’s second-in-line to the throne, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, will meet President Donald Trump at the White House in the highest-level visit to Washington by a Saudi royal since November’s presidential election.
The kingdom’s royal court announced on Monday that the prince, who is also defence minister and King Salman’s son, would start his Washington visit on Thursday.
The statement said Prince Mohammed will meet with Trump and a number of US officials to discuss “the strengthening of bilateral relations between the two countries and regional issues of mutual interest”.
No details were given on when he will meet Trump.
Saudi relations with Washington cooled under President Barack Obama after his administration secured a nuclear deal with regional rival Iran. Obama also openly criticised Gulf Arab countries.
