Dr. Hazza Al-Mutairi, Saudi ambassador to Mauritania, said the crown prince's visit came as a result of the distinguished and strengthening relations between the two countries, which have many areas of mutual interest.

Undoubtedly, bin Salman, who has the blood of Yemenis, Khashoggi and innocent people on his hands, was an unlikeable person in Buenos Aires from the media and public perspective.
