King Salman holds talks with Djibouti president after peace agreement

JEDDAH: King Salman held talks with the president of Djibouti on Monday, the day after he oversaw the signing of a peace agreement between Eritrea and Ethiopia. 

Djibouti, the small but highly strategic nation, is located on the Horn of Africa at the entrance to the Red Sea, and borders both Eritrea and Ethiopia.

President Ismail Omar Guelleh held a session of talks with the King in Jeddah.

The two men discussed bilateral relations and the latest regional and international developments, the Saudi Press Agency reported. 

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman also held talks with the Djibouti president at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah. 

The peace deal between Eritrea and Ethiopia brought an end to decades of hostilities between the two countries.

The signing ceremony was overseen by King Salman and attended by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The Crown Prince also held individual meetings on Monday with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki and Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Ambassador Khalid meets Saudi soldiers receiving treatment in US

  • Prince Khalid bin Salman met with Saudi soldiers who were being treated for injuries in the US
  • The Saudi ambassador praised the soldiers as “heros” for defending the Kingdom

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, met on Saturday with Saudi soldiers who were being treated for injuries in the US.

The Saudi ambassador praised the soldiers as “heros” for defending the Kingdom against the “Iran backed Houthi terrorist.”

Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab coalition fighting the Houthi militia, who overthrew the democratically elected, internationally recognized government of Yemen in 2014.

During the Yemen conflict, the militia has targeted Saudi Arabia using ballistic missiles, which United Nations investigations have found to have been manufactured by Iran.
