Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, arrived in Jordan on Tuesday, the second stop of his tour of the region.

He was welcomed upon his arrival at Amman airport by Jordan's King Abdullah II.

The Saudi royal flew in from Cairo, where he held official talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi that covered bilateral ties and regional developments and focused on strengthening economic relations.

Egypt and Saudi Arabia signed 14 agreements valued at $7.7 billion during the Crown Prince's visit.

Deals signed on Tuesday included an agreement between Saudi Arabia's ACWA Power and the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company to produce and transmit 1100 MW of windpower.

More renewable energy agreements were signed, as well as deals in involving petroleum products, food and fintech.

Crown Prince Mohammed's next stop is Turkey.
