Saudi crown prince lands in Egypt as part of foreign tour

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince landed in Egypt Sunday on the first leg of his maiden foreign tour as heir to the throne, a diplomatic charm offensive that follows his stunning rise to power.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to Cairo comes ahead of a scheduled trip to Britain on Wednesday for talks with Prime Minister Theresa May and the United States from March 19-22.

The trips are aimed partly at courting investors and come after a tumultuous period that saw a major military shake-up and an anti-corruption purge.

Egypt and Saudi Arabia have strengthened ties since Sisi won the elections.
