Saudi crown prince visits Turkiye

Saudi Arabia's crown prince is visiting Turkiye for the first time since the 2018 murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi in its Istanbul consulate.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will hold one-on-one talks with Mohammed bin Salman.

Mr Erdogan once indirectly accused the prince of ordering Saudi agents to kill Khashoggi. He denied any involvement.

US intelligence agencies concluded that the crown prince had approved an operation to capture or kill Khashoggi.

Saudi prosecutors blamed "rogue" agents and said the prince had no knowledge of the operation.

The visit comes as Turkiye seeks trade, investment and assistance to help it deal with a worsening economic crisis.

It has also worked to improve relations with the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Israel after years of tensions.

Prince Mohammed meanwhile wants to end his international isolation and restore his powerful regional role.
