'Trump summit will ensure Iran behaves normally': Saudi FM

Kenny Thornton | 19 May, 2017, 22:20

Expectations among most analysts in Washington are fairly low for the Middle East leg of Trump's trip.

Like President Donald Trump, the trip overseas will be her first since her husband's inauguration in January.

The chairman said bilateral trade and industrial investments between the two countries are on the rise, noting that the Kingdom ranks 12th in the list of USA trading partners, while the U.S. ranks second among KSA's largest trading partners.

The summit will be one of three weekend meetings, as Trump holds bilateral talks with top Saudi officials and with leaders of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which includes Saudi Arabia.

The Tweeps Forum, a five-year-old initiative of the a foundation with ties to the Saudi government, will "discuss how social media platforms can empower people against extremism and terrorism", according to organizers.

"The President is going to the Middle East to let our friends know we are back and to let our enemies know we are back", said David Urban, who ran the President's successful Pennsylvania campaign and worked with his transition team, on CNN.

Saudi Arabia, for its part, is set to roll out an economic partnership plan with Washington and USA businesses that could include up to $40bn in infrastructure and tens of billions more in other investments in the US.

Trump's inauguration sparked thousands of protesters to fill the streets of several European capitals, chaotic scenes that could be repeated during his stops in Rome, Brussels and Sicily.

Attracting more foreign investment is essential if Saudi Arabia is to realize its vision of breaking free of oil.

Both nations fear that unravelling the Iran nuclear deal will make the threat worse, but the United States has been very clear to Iran that it is no longer the "golden" days of the Obama administration that let Iran away with numerous infractions.

Brower said Trump should take advantage of her inherent skills.

In Brussels, Trump will attend a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the World War II-era alliance which Trump has repeatedly mused about abandoning because member states weren't paying their fair share.

The strategic-military relationship is central to the Saudi-US partnership.

No one has specified whether Keith's concert was meant to take place the same weekend that Trump was in Saudi Arabia, but a spokesperson for the White House recently said they didn't know anything about Keith's concert and that the singer would not be traveling with Trump, according to The Washington Post. But for numerous countries in attendance, the goal is greater coordination with and assistance from the USA to counter with the changing threat from ISIL as the group is defeated in Iraq and Syria and potentially spreads elsewhere.

Gulf leaders would likely welcome any designation of Iranian-supported militia groups as terrorist organisations.

When President Bill Clinton went on trips, questions followed about the various investigations surrounding him and his administration.

"There will be significant investment from Saudi [Arabia] in the US but also there will be significant benefits to Saudi Arabia", the kingdom's finance minister, Mohammed Al-Jadaan, said in an interview with CNNMoney.

As a builder, they think Trump will be impressed by the construction. But they believe the seriousness of the issues Trump will confront can help realign the President.
