Trump to embark on first overseas trip

"Tomorrow.I'm going to Saudi Arabia, going to Israel, going to Rome, and we have the G7", he said - a reference to a meeting of Western economic powers in Sicily.

A series of deadly shootings and bombings against foreigners and Saudi security forces that began in 2003 turned Riyadh into a loyal and robust partner in the fight against Al-Qaeda, with Mohammed bin Nayef, now the kingdom's crown prince, well-regarded by U.S. officials for his role overseeing a crackdown on the militants.

This is said against the backdrop of the President's proposed travel bans against people from several Muslim-majority countries, which are now still mired in the courts.

McMaster said Trump would deliver a speech in Saudi Arabia expressing hope that a peaceful vision of Islam would resonate worldwide.

KEITH: Very likely because the American press corps is following the president overseas, and there are likely to be more developments back in Washington, even as he's abroad.

Participation in "the inauguration of a new center meant to fight radicalism and promote moderation" is also on Trump's schedule while in Riyadh.

Apart from Saudi officials, Trump will also meet leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries, including the six nations that form the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

He added that Saudi Arabia wanted to send a message to the West that Muslim countries were "not enemies".

Former US President Jimmy Carter has some words of advice for President Donald Trump as the incumbent embarks on his first overseas trip. Though, according to a USA official, there are no tweaks or changes to the schedule to accommodate that.

In his first few months in office, US President Donald Trump has continuously broken with tradition and thrown convention to the wind.

The discovery of vast oil reserves beneath Saudi sands in the late 1930s secured the kingdom's place as a vital partner for the energy-hungry United States.

"He strongly believes that it is the strength of the faith of people in these religions that will stand up and ultimately be victorious over these forces of terrorism", Tillerson said.

The problem is that many Muslim countries, which are also allies of Washington, follow policies that create space for extremist thinking, while the USA follies rooted in wrong policies and repeated on the battlefields perpetuate this menace.

First, the U.S. President is about to visit Saudi Arabia, where the theme of his talks will be "peace in the middle East and the fight against ISIS*".

He said that Washington agreed about "confronting Iran's aggressive policies and its support for terrorism".

President Hassan Rohani faces a tough battle for re-election against hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi, who has called for a much tougher stance against the West and says a 2015 nuclear deal has not improved the lives of the poor.

Then the U.S. President will travel to the Vatican to meet with Pope.

Rohani made the deal a centerpiece of his efforts to end Iran's isolation and rebuild its economy with foreign investment.

"We will work with our allies, particularly U.S., to see that Iran is made to act like a normal country", Jubeir said.

Leaders and representatives of 55 countries - from the southeast Asian sultanate of Brunei to Africa's Niger and heavyweights including Turkey - have been invited by King Salman for Sunday's summit with Trump. What are we expecting at those events?

Apart from this, the Arab monarchies are maintaining security cooperation with the United States, he said.
