WASHINGTON - Saudi Arabia's powerful deputy crown prince held a full day of meetings with U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday, part of a visit aimed at restoring frayed ties with Washington and promoting his plan to wean the kingdom away from oil revenue.

Mohammed bin Salman, son of Saudi Arabia's King Salman, is expected to meet U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday.

Lawmakers said his discussions on Wednesday, including meetings with the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees and House Speaker Paul Ryan, emphasized his push to help end Saudi dependence on oil by 2030.

"I know that there are tremendous cultural challenges that he'll have to overcome, but if he's 50 percent successful, it will be something," said Republican Senator Bob Corker, who chairs the Foreign Relations committee.
