He was received by a Saudi delegation including Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Governor of Riyadh, at the King Khalid International Airport.

The Polish leader was then received by the Saudi Crown Prince at al-Yamamah Palace and “addressed ways of enhancing bilateral relations in all fields,” according to the SPA report.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is one of the leaders in oil production in the world and thus a strategic partner for Poland in the field of energy,” the Polish government said in a statement released following the high-level meeting.

The duo also reportedly discussed the scope of supplies of raw materials in line with the existing cooperation, and establishing the importance of a stable global oil market.
