Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Time Magazine on Friday that the kingdom wants the United States to maintain its presence in Syria to contain Iran.

Boeing's partnership with Saudi Arabia will develop the local capabilities the country needs manufacturing as well as help them localize their military industry.

The deal was signed by Ahmed Al-Khateeb, chairman of the board of directors of the Saudi Military Industries Company (SAMI), and Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing CEO and chairman of board of directors.

Other notable media meetings include dinner with Rupert Murdoch, CIA director and soon to be Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Vice President Mike Pence, Defence Secretary James Mattis and Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The Saudi government ordered the mass arrest and detention at Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton of more than 300 princes and business leaders in November previous year. "However, in the months since the crown prince's appointment, we have seen little reason to believe that his overtures are anything more than a slick PR exercise".

That's the reason for meeting with so many corporate leaders while in the U.S. It's unknown exactly what the two men talked about, but the prince and Gates previously announced a partnership to dedicate $10 million toward solving world issues.

Some in Seattle are critical of the welcome that business interests have laid on for the Prince and in particular of any military support offered for Saudi Arabia as it wages a bloody proxy war in Yemen against forces aligned with Iran.

Mercer Island resident Aisha Jumaan, a Yemeni-American public-health expert that established the Yemen Relief and also Reconstruction Foundation, a charity targeted at attending to the altruistic dilemma in Yemen, condemns Prince Mohammed for the hefty battle of private citizens in her residence nation.

Exactly 5 days earlier, Houthi missile shrapnel killed one Egyptian civilian and injured two others on Saudi territories. "His money blinds people".

The prince will head for California on March 31.
