WASHINGTON U.S. President Donald Trump and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman discussed opportunities for new economic programs and investments between the two countries during a meeting on Tuesday, the White House said.

During the meeting with Prince Mohammed, Trump said he would support development of a new U.S.-Saudi program focused on energy, industry, infrastructure and technology that would provide potentially more than $200 billion in investments in the next four years, the White House said in a statement.

The two leaders also agreed to continue consultations on energy to ensure global economic growth and to limit "supply disruption and volatility." (Reporting by Ayesha Rascoe; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
