Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman left Tunisia for Argentina to attend the G20 summit, Alarabiya said early Wednesday.

The crown prince held a meeting with Tunisia's President Beji Caid Essebsi at Carthage Palace, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported Tuesday night.

Mohammed Bin Salman conveyed the greetings of his father, King Salman, to Essebsi during the meeting, according to SPA.

The meeting was attended by senior officials from both states, including Tunisian Prime Minister Yousseh El-Shahed.

The two sides discussed bilateral relations between Saudi Arabia and Tunisia in various fields, opportunities to develop cooperation between the two countries, and current Middle Eastern and international affairs, according to SPA.

Essebsi awarded Mohammed Bin Salman Tunisia's highest presidential medal, as "an appreciation for his efforts in supporting and enhancing the Saudi-Tunisian relationship."

Tens of Tunisians had protested against the visit of the crown prince to the country, voicing criticism over the war in Yemen and the Jamal Khashoggi case.
