Hariri Pays Brief Visit to Saudi Arabia

Prime Minister Saad Hariri traveled to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday where he held talks with the newly appointed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Jeddah, his media office said in a statement Thursday.

Hariri flew back to Beirut Thursday morning.

In June, Saudi Arabia's King Salman ousted his nephew as crown prince and named his son Mohammed bin Salman, capping a meteoric rise for the 31-year-old that puts him one step from the throne.
