President Xi Jinping told Prince Mohammed that Beijing opposes any effort to interfere in Saudi Arabia’s internal affairs, while the crown prince said his government supports Beijing’s efforts to fight extremism—an apparent reference to China’s crackdown on Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in its Xinjiang region.
