Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz has reportedly invited Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Muslim leaders in Riyadh later in May, local media reported Wednesday.

Jordan's King Abdullah and Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika are also among the dignitaries invited to the summit taking place during Trump's stop to the Gulf nation as part of his first presidential foreign tour, which also includes visits to Israel and the Vatican.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, Saudi embassy representative in Jordan, Tariq bin Mohammed Rashwan, delivered the invitation to Abbas in Amman for the May 20-21 gathering. Abbas has reportedly agreed to attend the event.
