Saudi crown prince visits Tunisia

Saudi crown prince visits Tunisia

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received a personal welcome yesterday from Tunisia’s president Beji Caid Essebsi, who greeted his guest at the airport after two days of protests in the capital that reflected international concern about the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Essebsi honored the prince with a rare display of high protocol from a salute to the flags to the sound of the national anthems before the two reviewed troops.

They then headed to the presidential palace in Carthage, outside Tunis, for closed-door talks, the only scheduled activity during the brief visit by the prince, who was on a tour of Arab countries before heading to the Group of 20 summit in Argentina, Reuters reported.
