Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was holding meetings in Algeria as he continued his tour of Arab nations after attending the Group of 20 summit in Argentina.

With pomp reserved for heads of state, Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia greeted the prince on the tarmac late on Sunday. A bevy of top Saudi ministers and businessmen were holding talks on Monday.

Qatar's withdrawal from OPEC, announced on Monday, will likely be added to the agenda. Saudi Arabia has led a boycott of the tiny Gulf state since last year.

Unlike in Tunisia, where the prince's visit sparked protests over the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi at the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, Algerian Energy Minister Mustapha Guitouni said the prince "is welcome in his second country."
