On the 24th (local time), the last day of his state visit to Saudi Arabia, President메이저놀이터 Yoon Seok-yeol had an exclusive chat with Saudi Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. This meeting between President Yoon and Crown Prince bin Salman was not planned, but it took place when Crown Prince bin Salman made a surprise visit to the guesthouse where President Yoon resides. After a friendly chat, President Yoon sat next to the driver’s seat of the Mercedes-Benz car driven by Crown Prince Bin Salman and moved to the Future Investment Initiative Forum ( FII ) event venue. It took 15 minutes to get to the venue.
What kind of conversation did the two have in the car driven by Crown Prince Bin Salman? It is said that an interpreter was in the back seat of the vehicle. Crown Prince Bin Salman told President Yoon, “I hope that next time the President comes, we can ride together in a Hyundai electric vehicle produced in Saudi Arabia,” said Presidential Office Spokesperson Lee Do-woon. Keeping in mind that Hyundai Motor Company and Saudi Arabia have decided to build a semi-assembly ( CKD ) plant in Saudi Arabia through a joint venture, this appears to be an intention to further deepen cooperation between the two countries. A senior official in the Presidential Office said, “We believe this reflects Crown Prince bin Salman’s earnest wish to have electric vehicles produced in Saudi Arabia sooner than expected through Korea-Saudi cooperation.”Crown Prince Bin Salman remained in his seat until President Yoon’s speech and discussion ended at the Future Investment Initiative Forum. At the forum, President Yoon said, “There is an Arabic proverb that says, ‘Before you go on a journey, choose the friends you will go with.’” He added, “The Republic of Korea is an innovative and trustworthy partner with whom we can stand together for the future.”
