Saudi Crown prince says US-Saudi ties strong
This is the first reported visit by a senior Trump administration appointee to the kingdom. "Our relationship with the United States is historic and strategic, any attempts to undermine that will falter," Prince Mohammed said, according to state news agency SPA late on Friday. Prince Mohammed, who is also interior minister, said his country will continue to combat terrorism. In a recent phone call Saudi Arabia's King Salman invited US President Donald Trump "to lead a Middle East effort to defeat terrorism and to help build a new future, economically and socially," for Saudi Arabia and the region.
