TEHRAN, April 24 (MNA) – US Secretary of State Tony Blinken is planning to travel to Saudi Arabia this weekend after his trip to China.Blinken is expected to participate in a special meeting of the World Economic Forum that will take place in Riyadh on April 28-29, the sources said.

He's expected to meet Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and other leaders from the region, Axios reported.

The Biden administration continues to work toward a potential mega-deal that could pave the way for Saudi normalization with the Israeli regime, but most US officials who work on the issue view it as a pipe dream.

US officials say Blinken is also considering traveling to occupied Palestine as part of this trip and meeting with the Israeli regime's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other officials.
