Saudi Arabia/Region: King Salman hosts a majority of Arab leaders for summit and defence drill
King Salman Bin Abdelaziz Al-Saud hosted scores of leaders from around the Arab region for the 29th League of Arab States summit, held in Dhahran in Eastern Province on 15 April. One notable absentee was Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani. The summit was held at the King Abdelaziz Centre for World Culture, build by Saudi Aramco in 2016. It was followed by the Joint Gulf Shield Drill 1 military exercises on 16 April, in which Qatari forces surprisingly did take part.
