Trump visit draws country singer Toby Keith to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir attends a news conference after a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, Russia, April 26, 2017.

Country singer Toby Keith will reportedly perform in Riyadh this Saturday during President Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia.

The country superstar is headed to Saudi Arabia this weekend to perform during Trump's first official state visit.

It will be interesting to see which songs Keith decides to play at the concert, considering alcohol is banned in the conservative country that practices Islamic law.

At end of the summit, leaders are going to launch global counter-extremism center in Riyadh, which will fight an "ideological battle", he added.

According to Jubeir, Riyadh and Washington agree regarding the USA leading role in the region, its methods of fighting against terrorism, resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the necessity to restrict Iran's involvement in regional affairs and other issues.

According to Arab news reports, Jubeir says that "differences" arose with the former United States administration over several issues, and that Riyadh "will work with our allies, particularly [the] USA, to see that Iran is made to act like a normal country". "As long as Iran threatens with terrorism, it is impossible to have normal relations with them".

Sunday will also see the US president, along with Jordan's King Abdullah II, take part in a meeting of Twitter users who will discuss means of fighting extremism in the digital age.

US Navy commanders have accused Iran of jeopardizing worldwide navigation by "harassing" warships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.
