He’s going to the first Saudi-African Summit.
In an effort to strengthen its relations with Africa, Saudi Arabia has arranged a meeting for later in the day.
collaboration in areas including energy, trade, political collaboration, and regional security is a top priority on the summit’s agenda. Other politicians that showed up for the meeting included Presidents Bola Tinubu of Nigeria, Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi, and Samia Suluhu of Tanzania.
