Abe and his delegation were received by Emir of Riyadh Faisal Bin Bandar, and other senior officials including Economy Minister Muhammad Bin Mazyad Al-Twaijri, Saudi Press Agency reported.
During his five-day tour, Abe will also visit the United Arab Emirates and Oman, where a new ruler was sworn in on Saturday following the death of modern day Oman's founding father Sultan Qaboos.
