Former President Jimmy Carter meets Saudi crown prince during visit to kingdom

Former President Jimmy Carter has met with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Muqrin during a visit to the kingdom.

The official Saudi Press Agency says the two met in a palace in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on Wednesday. The report says they discussed a number of topics but gave no details.

On Tuesday, Carter and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, visited Saudi Arabia's neighbor Qatar where they met Saad al-Muhannadi, the president of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.

The Carters and al-Muhannadi discussed ways to build cooperation between the foundation and The Carter Center, a non-profit public policy center that focuses on ways to tackle poverty, disease, conflict and hunger around the world.
