Trump to Take Part in Summits with Gulf, Muslim Countries

RIYADH – US President Donald Trump is set to participate on Sunday in Riyadh in two summits, one with the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and another with countries with a Muslim majority, official sources said on Tuesday.

Trump is set to arrive in Saudi Arabia on Saturday on the first stop of his first international tour and the following day he will attend the summits, according to the official SPA agency.

The foreign ministers of the GCC member countries, which include the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, will hold a preparatory meeting in Riyadh on Wednesday.

In a statement, GCC secretary-general Abdullatif al-Zayani stated that the preliminary meeting will address regional and international policy, counterterrorism and strategic dialogue between GCC member countries and other international blocs and countries.

The summit between Arab and Muslim countries and the US is set to invite, in addition to the GCC members, the leaders of Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Yemen, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Niger, Somalia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Brunei.

In announcing his trip to Saudi Arabia, Trump said it was a “truly historic” visit aimed at building a new alliance of cooperation and support with Muslim allies.

Trump’s tour will include stops in Saudi Arabia, the Vatican and Israel, as well as his attendance at the NATO summit on May 25 in Brussels and the G7 summit on May 26-27 in Sicily, Italy.
