Friendship increased between two arch enemy countries, Saudi Prince Salman reached Turkey, know the real reason for closeness with Erdogan


Prince Salman’s visit to Turkey is important

Relations between Saudi Arabia and Turkey were strained after the murder of journalist Khashoggi. Erdogan indirectly accused the prince of killing Khashoggi. However, he denied any involvement. Indeed, both Turkey and Saudi Arabia consider themselves representatives of the Islamic world, and as such there are often differences between the two on different issues. This is the reason why Salman’s visit to Turkey is being considered very important.

Journalist Khashoggi was brutally murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018, nearly a year after Erdogan’s visit to Saudi Arabia in 2017. Turkey had launched a trial against 26 Saudi agents on suspicion of Khashoggi’s murder, although the court later stayed the proceedings and transferred the trial to Saudi Arabia. In such a situation, now Saudi Prince Salman will try his best to end the controversy over Khashoggi’s murder in a meeting with Erdogan.
