US President Joe Biden left Jeddah on Saturday after a two-day official visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, during which he participated in the Jeddah Security and Development Summit.

The President was seen off at the Royal Terminal at King Abdulaziz International Airport by Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, Advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, Governor of Makkah Region, Princess Rima bint Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, Saudi Ambassador to the United States, the Chargé d'Affairs of the US Embassy in the Kingdom Martina Strong, and the US Consul General in Jeddah Faris Asad.

Biden earlier told the Summit that the United States would remain firmly committed to its allies in the Middle East and was "not going anywhere."

He met on Friday with Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
