Saudi Arabia's crown prince resumes tour of Arab countries after G20 summit
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in Algeria late on Sunday from Mauritania, resuming a tour of Arab countries after attending the G20 summit in Argentina.
Algeria's prime minister Ahmed Ouyahia received the prince in the capital Algiers, the state news agency APS said.
Before the summit, Prince Mohammed had visited the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Tunisia.
On his way to Algeria he had stopped over in Mauritania, where Saudi Arabia pledged to build a large hospital in the capital Nouakchott, state media said.
Algerian-Saudi investments and trade relations, especially in the oil and petrochemical sectors, will be discussed during the two-day visit, APS said.
Algeria is one of the few Arab countries that holds good relations with Saudi Arabia and Iran. Algiers also has strong ties with Qatar.
