Washington, Riyadh - The schedule of US President Donald Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia was uncovered on Tuesday with additional details about the 17th consultative meeting of leaders of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States, Gulf-US Summit, and Arab-Islamic-US Summit to be hosted by the Kingdom next weekend.

President Trump will give a speech on his trip to Saudi Arabia this weekend to convey his "hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam", National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said today.

He also said the speech will demonstrate America's commitment to what he called its "Muslim partners" and aim to "unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies of all civilization".

"Saudi Arabia has made strategic mistakes in Yemen and we hope they will become ready to hold talks with Iran in a fair atmosphere", Qasemi said. The second draft of the order removed Iraq from this list, and both are now held up in court. In his recent meeting with Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas, Mr Trump had assured the latter, saying: "We will get it done".

"It is there we will begin to construct a new foundation of cooperation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence and to embrace a more just and hopeful future for young Muslims in their countries", the United States president said ahead of his visit. "Clearly new screening procedures are needed".

Dakota Access Pipeline Leaked 84 Gallons Of Oil In April
Those wetlands, an Ohio EPA spokesman told ThinkProgress earlier this week, won't recover for decades. "It's just what happens". They must happen fairly often because according to Walsh, the state has 200 to 300 pipeline leaks every year.

In the wake of the previous United States administration's participation in the historic nuclear deal with Iran, Saudi Arabia is now seen to be attempting to restart positive relations with Washington.

This is not to say that the U.S. -Saudi relationship is not valuable or crucial in many respects.

Earlier this month, U.S. officials said the USA was seeking to reach "billions" of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia as part of Trump's visit to Riyadh.

From Riyadh, Trump will fly to Israel, where he will visit the historic site of Masada, just to the south of the West Bank, in a territory that Israelis consider to have once been part of the historic Jewish kingdom of Judea.

A New York Stock Exchange delegation is also expected to visit Saudi Arabia after Trump to try to lure a listing by Aramco, slated for 2018 and worth about $100 billion.

His presence will shake up the group, particularly on trade, where he has turned away from global trade deals, and is he also expected to push USA allies for help in North Korea, Afghanistan and the Middle East.
