A four-day trip to the Middle East by US President Joe Biden ended as he left Saudi Arabia on Saturday.
The regional tour also included Israel and the occupied West Bank, and was the first since Biden became president last year.
According to a state-run television, Biden was seen off at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah by the governor of the Makkah region, Prince Khalid Al-Faisal.
Biden participated in a US-Arab summit with the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members, Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq, prior to his departure.
The US president said that Washington will not leave any vacuum in the Middle East to Russia, China, or Iran during the visit.
During his visit to the kingdom, Biden also held separate meetings with Saudi King Salman and his Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Amid Moscow’s war in Ukraine, Biden’s visit to the Middle East was seen as a US attempt to assert leadership in the region against Russia and China.
