​October 23, 2022

The Royal Court issued the following statement today:

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud issued a directive delegating His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, and Prime Minister, to lead the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's delegation to the Arab Summit in Algeria. However, the medical team at the royal clinics advised that HRH the Crown Prince shall avoid long-distance and nonstop travel by plane, to avoid pressure trauma to the ear and affecting the middle ear, which makes it difficult for him to visit Algeria, taking into account that the long round trip within a period not exceeding 24 hours. Consequently, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has instructed the Minister of Foreign Affairs to chair the Kingdom's delegation to this summit, reiterating the Kingdom's support to Algeria, for everything that would make the summit successful.
