Prince Mohammad to meet Trump at WH on March 20


JEDDAH: US President Donald Trump will host Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on March 20, the White House said on Monday.
“The president looks forward to discussing ways to strengthen ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in announcing the meeting. His visit to Washington is part of a three-leg visit, with Mohammed bin Salman having visited Egypt and the UK earlier in March as part of a long foreign trip, his first as crown prince. Prince Mohammed bin arrived to Riyadh on Saturday after visits to Egypt and the United Kingdom, Saudi state-news site SPA reported. The crown prince started his first official foreign tour as heir to the throne on Monday, beginning in Egypt where he met President Abdelfattah El-Sisi and then continuing to the UK where he met with Prime Minister Theresa May.
