Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is in the United States this week for talks focusing on bilateral security cooperation and his strategy to diversify the Kingdom’s energy-dependent economy.
He has so far met with US Congressional leaders, Secretary of State John Kerry and the directors of the CIA and National Intelligence. He will meet President Barack Obama at the White House on Friday, according to Saudi sources.
Following his talks in Washington, the deputy crown prince will then travel to California’s Silicon Valley to meet with technology executives before ending his US visit in New York where he is expected to discuss the wars in Yemen and Syria with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
The Prince’s UN meeting may serve as an effort to settle a diplomatic row over whether the Saudi-led military coalition seeking to remove Yemen’s Houthi rebels from power, in order to reinstate the internationally recognized government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, had inflicted collateral damage on civilians, including on children, a charge that Riyadh denies.
