Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and other members of the Trump administration attended a summit hosted by Saudi King Salman and other Saudi officials in the kingdom’s capital on Sunday.
Saudi Arabia is currently hosting the annual UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East and North Africa.
The summit is the first time the two countries have hosted a Security Council summit.
Trump, who has been an avid critic of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, made no mention of the kingdom during the event.
The Trump administration has repeatedly called for the U.S. to pressure the kingdom to rein in its human rights abuses, but the president has also suggested he might do so in return for U.N. recognition of Israel.
The two leaders spoke at length, discussing ways to advance bilateral ties, and the two leaders also discussed the possibility of hosting the summit.
During their meeting, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Trump that Saudi Arabia will be “very careful” about the human rights situation in the Kingdom.
Trump also spoke about the need to “put aside our differences” with the kingdom.
The summit is part of the annual United Nations General Assembly, where U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will address the body.
