(TAP)- Premier Youssef Chahed Thursday had a talk in Riyadh with King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud as he started a two-day official visit to Saudi Arabia.

The meeting focused on "ways to scale up cooperation in several priority areas, particularly finance and investments" as well as security and military cooperation to address threats of terrorism and extremism, said a Prime Ministry press release.

Emphasis was also laid on the importance of exchanging experiences and expertise in science and culture. The state and prospects of cooperation took centre stage.

"A number of Arab, regional and international issues of common interest were discussed along with preparations underway for the 30th Arab Summit, set for next March in Tunis, and efforts made to ensure its success given the major challenges facing the Arab world," further reads the press release.

The Prime Minister's visit falls in line with endeavours to strengthen relations and willingness to take them to the next level.
