Crown Prince Mohammed said that the Kingdom's relationship with the UAE is based on cooperation and common policies towards events in the region, and that the strong relations between the two countries are built on solid foundations.
The Saudi crown prince’s last visit to the UAE was in November 2018 as part of a wider regional tour of several Arab countries.
Crown Prince Mohammed was driven to Abu Dhabi's presidential palace Qasr Al-Watan through the city where the streets were lined with Saudi and Emirati flags.
As his motorcade arrived at the palace it was greeted by a calvacade that escorted them towards the entrance.
Inside the palace, the crown princes listened to their national anthems and inspected the guard of honour.
