Subject: Travel Pool Report #6 -- palace departure

After meeting for about two hours at Erga Palace, President Obama and King Salman emerged, walking together to the president's awaiting motorcade.

They retraced their earlier steps, strolling through the same corridor they walked when Obama arrived.

Members of the Saudi honor guard and law enforcement officers lined the path leading to the exit. The president and the king walked slowly, continuing their conversation as they inched their way outside.

At 4:18 p.m., the motorcade was rolling. A couple photos from Obama's departure are attached.

1.       T.H. Ashton Carter, Secretary of Defense
