RIYADH, June 18 (KUNA) — US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is to arrive in Saudi Arabia Tuesday on a one-day visit which is her first since she was appointed last February.

Rice”s visit to Saudi Arabia is part of a Middle Eastern tour which will begin today in Israel, and would take her to the Palestinian territories, Jordan and Egypt.

Saudi daily Okaz said today that talks between Rice and Saudi Crown Prince First Deputy Prime Minister Commander of the National Guards Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz and Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal are to focus on recent regional and international developments, especially the Iraqi situation, the peace process in the Middle East and fighting terrorism.

Okaz added that Saudi-American talks are to discuss the development of bilateral cooperation in light of the recent April visit of the Saudi Crown Prince to the United States that paved the road for new cooperation between both countries.

Rice is scheduled to hold talks with Saudi officials and leaders of the region addressing political reform issues and the implementation of democracy.
