Speaking to reporters after the Trump administration said the president would visit Riyadh this month, Jubeir said the trip would include a bilateral summit, a meeting with Arab Gulf leaders and another with leaders of Arab and Muslim countries.
“It’s a very clear message to the world that the US and the Arab Muslim countries can form a partnership,” Jubeir said.
“It will lead to, we believe, enhanced cooperation between the US and Arab and Islamic countries in combating terrorism and extremism and it will change the conversation with regards to America’s relationship with the Arab and Islamic world.”
