MBS roadshow gets under way, seeking to persuade sceptics abroad and at home
Before setting off on his first foreign excursion since being appointed king-in-waiting (only) last June, Crown Prince and defence minister Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) took few chances. A wide-ranging reshuffle of the military top brass was enacted by King Salman Bin Abdelaziz on 26 February based on MBS’s recommendations. In parallel were a string of changes in the civilian hierarchy, including the appointment of new junior ministers.There is also a new governor of Al-Jouf province, where Prince Badr Bin Sultan Bin Abdelaziz took over from Prince Fahd Bin Badr Bin Abdelaziz.
