Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday gifted his country’s first indigenous electric car — Togg — to Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The Turkish president arrived in the kingdom on the first leg of his three-country Gulf trip aimed at strengthening regional and trade ties.
During his visit to Al-Salam Royal Palace in Jeddah, President Erdogan and the Saudi crown prince held one-on-one and inter-delegation meetings, Turkey’s state-run agency Anadolu Ajansı reported.
Following the talks, Erdogan presented a Pamukkale white Togg to the Saudi crown prince. The two leaders examined the vehicle in the courtyard of the palace.
