US President Barack Obama hosted Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House on Friday, underscoring his guest's meteoric rise and increasingly pivotal role in managing strained US-Saudi ties.

The 30-year-old deputy crown prince, who has become the driving force behind economic reform and a more activist Saudi foreign policy, swept into the West Wing with a band of aides for hour-long talks.

Mohammed bin Salman is the King's son and the country's defense minister, but he has met the very biggest of Washington's big hitters during a week-long visit.
