Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, will not attend the Arab League summit in Algeria in November for health reasons.


Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz had issued a directive delegating Crown Prince Mohammed to lead the Kingdom’s delegation to the summit, however, the medical team at the royal clinics advised him to avoid long-distance and nonstop travel by plane.

Consequently, King Salman instructed Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah to lead the Kingdom’s delegation to the summit.
