Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Princess Reema bint Bandar, has met with President Donald Trump to present her credentials as the Kingdom’s top diplomat in Washington.
“HRH stated that the Saudi-U.S. partnership is essential to the interests of both countries and expressed confidence that the two countries are capable of overcoming any challenges at the regional or global levels,” the embassy said.
The 44-year-old diplomat expressed her enthusiasm on social media, writing, “Looking forward to starting this chapter of my life in Washington DC.”
“Presented credentials today at the White House,” she wrote on Twitter. “Conveyed the well wishes of Kingdom’s Leadership. Looking forward to working on strengthening and solidifying the historic Saudi – U.S partnership.”
