Travel Pool Report #7 - MOU
Michael Shear • The New York Times
May 21, 2017: 11:49 AM

Your pooler was led into a large, ornate room in the conference center where POTUS sat in a large stuffed gold and blue chair. King Salman to his left.

POTUS shook hands with a couple of folks and chatted briefly out of earshot of the pool.

Also in the room, seated, were Dina Powell, Rex Tillerson, Jared Kushner and Gary Cohn.

After a few minutes, an announcer spoke, first in Arabic and then in English, introduced King Salman and POTUS, and said that an MOU between the United States and the GCC had been signed to establish a center to fight extremism in Riyadh.

The announcer said that Crown Prince MBN would represent the GCC and that Rex Tillerson would represent the US. The two men then exchanged the signed MOU in green folders and shook hands.

Your pooler was led out of the room.
