Saudi King Salman has invited several leaders from Arab and Muslim countries to participate in the US-Islamic-Arab summit
It comes after President Donald Trump announced that his first foreign visit as US President would be to Saudi Arabia.
The US-Islamic-Arab summit is expected to cover a range of issues, including counter-terrorism and halting Iranian “expansionism” in the region.
Trump’s visit is expected to mark a reversal of US’ disengagement from the Middle East, which led to strained relations between Riyadh and Washington under Barack Obama’s presidency. (T/RS5/RS1)
