Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz has called to hold a summit with African leaders inside the Kingdom by the end of this year or early 2018.

This comes after Saudi Arabia’s successful hosting of the Arab American Islamic Summit held this past May, which was attended by United States President Donald Trump during his visit to the Kingdom and the leaders and heads of dozens of Arab and Islamic countries.

That summit focused on combating extremist ideology and halting the financing of terrorism.
