    The Turkish government's administration has rented 500 Mercedes-Benz cars and fully reserved a luxury hotel due to the upcoming arrival of Saudi King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud in Ankara at the invitation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    During his visit, the Saudi king will live in a new five-star hotel located in a trendy district of Ankara, which has been fully reserved for him and his entourage.

    Sixteen trucks delivered food, linens and even a personal toilet for the Saudi leader to the hotel. The king will live on a separate floor in the best rooms and will be served by his own people.

    The underground car park of the hotel in which the Saudi leader is expected to stay turned out to be too small for the king's cortege. Some cars were specially delivered to the country's capital from Istanbul and Antalya in order to provide the king with the required number of luxury vehicles.

    The Saudi leader is planning to stay in Ankara on April 11-13. During his visit, both sides will discuss their bilateral relations, as well as problems of regional and international importance.

    On April 14-15, Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud is also expected to take part in the 13th summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul.
