RNS | US Christian evangelical delegation meets Saudi crown prince

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Tuesday (Sept. 10) with a delegation of American evangelical Christians in the Red Sea city of Jiddah as the kingdom works to forge closer ties with an influential electoral base in the U.S. that could be crucial to the 2020 elections.

The visit comes the same week two U.S. senators met with the crown prince in the first such visit by members of Congress in more than a year.
