Saudi Embassy denies 'early end' to Prince Sultan's visit
The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington DC yesterday issued the following clarification in a press release.

In view of inaccurate reports disseminated by some news agencies that Second Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense and Aviation and Inspector-General Prince Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz cut short his official visit to the United States, the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington DC would like to make it clear that Prince Sultan completed all scheduled meetings during his official visit to Washington DC from the 1st to the 4th of November.  His Royal Highness Prince Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz met with Secretary of State Albright on Wednesday November 3rd instead of Friday November 5th at the White House before his meeting with President Clinton.
The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia would like to clarify this to all news agencies.
