Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman makes first Turkey trip since Khashoggi murder | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman makes first Turkey trip since Khashoggi murder | DW News” – below is their description.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan welcomed Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at an official ceremony at the presidential complex in Ankara on Wednesday. The trip is seen as an attempt to normalize relations between the countries that soured following the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside Riyadh’s Istanbul consulate in 2018.

The crown prince, seen as the de-facto leader of Saudi Arabia, met Erdogan on the last leg of a Middle East tour that has taken him to Egypt and Jordan. His visit comes ahead of US President Joe Biden’s trip to the region next month.

In April, Erdogan traveled to Saudi Arabia and held one-on-one talks with the Saudi prince, where he raised the possibility of investments that could help ease the strain on Turkey’s struggling economy.

Saudi Arabia has been trying to broaden its alliances at a time when relations between Riyadh and Washington are strained. The crown prince also wants to end the scandal surrounding Khashoggi’s assassination, which has damaged his image.
