More than 500 reporters and journalists from around the world will cover the Riyadh summit during the US President Donald Trump’s upcoming historic visit to Saudi Arabia, the kingdom’s Minister of Culture and Information Awad bin Saleh al-Awwad said.
Awwad said the fact that the Saudi visit will be Trump’s first foreign trip as US president shows the kingdom’s prominence in the Muslim world, and the importance Washington attaches to the kingdom as a strategic ally.
The minister said the anticipated meeting between Saudi King Salman and President Trump would deepen the understanding between the two countries with regard to political, commercial and security ties.
During Trump’s visit, Riyadh and Washington are expected to finalize many bilateral agreements, boosting economy and contributing to investment growth.
The minster said Saudi Arabia – from where Islam originated - has invited more than 50 leaders from the Muslim world to attend in order to build more momentum to combat extremism and terrorism.
