US President Donald Trump and Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman are to hold their first meeting in nearly a year. 

Crown Prince Mohammed's agenda leading up to the meeting is straightforward: to keep US-Saudi relations tight as the kingdom pushes back against its arch rival, Iran.

The two allies have a strong rapport – Saudi Arabia is where Trump went on his first official foreign visit after assuming presidency. 

White House watchers expect tougher Iran intervention by the new Secretary of State.
