Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman left the Kingdom on Monday heading to visit Egypt, Jordan and Turkey where he will meet with the leaders of the three countries, state news agency SPA reported.
The visits were based on the directives of King Salman bin Abdulaziz. They aim to strengthen Saudi Arabia’s relations with the three countries.
The Crown Prince will discuss with the leaders of Egypt, Jordan and Turkey, enhancing bilateral relations and issues of common interest.
The Crown Prince's tour comes ahead of US President Joe Biden's visit to the Kingdom next month.
During Biden's visit, Saudi Arabia will host a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which the US president will participate in. The leaders of Egypt, Iraq, and Jordan will also participate in the summit.
On Sunday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi hosted a trilateral summit with Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
The three leaders discussed joint cooperation on issues of common interest, and regional and international updates, according to the Egyptian presidency’s spokesman.
