According to Fars News Agency’s International Group, after much speculation about the US President’s meeting with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia during his visit to Riyadh, the White House rejected Joe Biden’s statement that he did not meet with Mohammed bin Salman.

A few days ago, US President Joe Biden said about his trip to Saudi Arabia that he will not meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during this trip. سی‌ان‌ان “The White House says Biden’s meeting with Saudi officials next month will include a meeting with the Crown Prince,” the report said.
