Yesterday (Thursday), Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Adel al-Jubeir commented on US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Middle East later this month. “It will lead to, we believe, enhanced cooperation between the US and Arab and Islamic countries in combating terrorism and extremism,” He told reporters. “It will change the conversation with regards to America's relationship with the Arab and Islamic world.”

Jubeir explained that Trump’s visit to the capital Riyadh will include a bilateral conference, a meeting with Arab Gulf country leaders and another meeting with leaders of other Muslim countries. “It also lays to rest the notion that America is anti-Muslim,” Jubeir stated. “It's a very clear message to the world that the US and the Arab Muslim countries can form a partnership.”
