The image, which will likely go viral on social media in both countries, was posted to Hariri’s Twitter account shortly after 2 a.m. in the Saudi capital. It shows the trio smiling as they pose for the snap.
The selfie, taken with a slight tilt, shows Hariri in the foreground and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his country’s ambassador to the US Prince Khaled bin Salman behind him.
The relaxed leaders are seen in casual dress with the crown prince wearing what appears to be a dark winter thobe with the prime minister in a zip-up pullover, and the Kingdom’s top US-based diplomat in a classic white thobe with the collar buttons undone.
The Saudi Press Agency reported that Prince Mohammed and Prime Minister Hariri discussed bilateral and regional issues on Friday.
Hariri was welcomed by King Salman in Riyadh on Wednesday in his first visit back to the country since he announced his resignation in the kingdom.
