Saudi crown prince participates in G20 summit

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in Indonesia to participate in the G20 summit as leaders gathered Tuesday morning to discuss a number of issues facing the world, including the war in Ukraine, a global economic downturn and food security, among other topics.

At Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, the Saudi delegation was received by Indonesia’s Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar.

The delegation included ministers and senior officials.

G20 chair Indonesian President Joko Widodo called on Tuesday for unity at the bloc's 2022 summit and said that the group must not allow the world to fall into another cold war and that conflict must end.

If the war did not end, it would be difficult for the world to move forward, he said, without referring directly to the war in Ukraine at his opening speech to the summit.

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince also met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines of the summit in Indonesia.
The two leaders discussed bilateral ties, regional and international developments, and cooperation across various fields.
