The King of Saudi Arabia, Abdala bin Abdulaziz, visited Madrid on Tuesday, where he met with Spanish King, Juan Carlos and other business leaders at El Pardo Palace.
Abdala began a three day visit to Spain on Monday.
The two leaders are expected to talk about joint plans to invest in energy and infrastructures together.
In an interview with Spain’s leading daily El Pais on Monday, Abdala addressed the situation in the Middle East and said he fears conflicts in the Palestinian territories, Lebanon and Iraq could explode into a global one.
Abdala is hold a meeting with the Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero later on Tuesday.
Zapatero’s government has striven to get the European Union to make greater efforts toward a new Middle East peace initiative but the reception from Israeli and Palestinian officials has been lukewarm.
Abdala will return to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.
It is the first time Abdala has visited Spain – the last visit by a Saudi leader was 25 years ago.
