Saudi Arabia is preparing to receive the United States President Donald Trump for a state visit on Saturday. All seem set, with the Saudi and US flag fluttering along streets in Riyadh’s central business district, said the Guardian. The Arabian country sees the visit – Trump’s first since taking office – as his recognising the country as leading power in the Arab world. Saudi is also cashing in on Trump’s speech against extreme ideology, which will give fillip to the Arabian country’s against extremist Wahabism. Other gains Saudi hopes to make include getting the US support for its reforms and on Iran.
“The war against extremism is a centrepiece of that,” the Guaadian quoted a member of the royal family as saying.
Trump is expected to visit Jerusalem , Rome, the Nato and G7 summits.
