Oman’s sultan arrived in Saudi Arabia on Sunday to meet with the Saudi king, starting the first visit by an Omani ruler in years against the backdrop of renewed diplomatic efforts to end the war in Yemen and the sultanate’s worsening economic woes. With trumpets blaring and fighter jets streaking overhead, Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said landed in Neom, a futuristic desert city planned along the kingdom’s Red Sea coast. Saudi Arabia’s powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, greeted him on the tarmac and guided him down a long lavender carpet for palace meetings as regional tensions simmer and his government faces growing stress at home.
