The White House said on Monday that President Donald Trump will meet Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman next Tuesday, where they are expected to discuss bilateral and regional issues including the Iran nuclear deal and the Qatar dispute.
In an official statement on Monday which confirmed the exclusive run by The National on February 28, the government said Mr Trump will welcome the Crown Prince to the White House on March 20. “The president looks forward to discussing ways to strengthen ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia and to advance our common security and economic priorities,” the statement said.
Although the travel itinerary for the multiple stops is not yet finalised, it appears Washington will be the first stop in a two-week visit for Prince Mohammed to the United States. He will arrive in the US capital on Monday, and will hold three days of high-level meetings with senior defence, intelligence and state department officials. The Crown Prince will also meet Congressional members, business leaders and attend at least one event with major policy analysts and thinkers while in Washington.
