Pariah no more? Biden to meet with Saudi king, crown prince, White House says
President Joe Biden will meet with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman when he travels to the Middle East next week for a closely watched visit to discuss regional and energy security.
Biden and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz are holding a bilateral meeting that will include the king’s top advisers during a summit of regional energy producers in Jeddah, the White House said.
“As you know, the crown prince is on that leadership team, so he’ll be a part of that meeting,” National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby told reporters on Thursday.
