He accompanied King Faisal during most of his missions abroad. In 1934 (1353 H), he chaired the Saudi delegation during talks with Yemen at the Taif Conference, which culminated in the Taif Treaty between the two countries that same year. He was also appointed assistant to his brother Faisal at the 1939 London Conference on the Palestinian cause. In 1964 he became Crown Prince and First Deputy Premier, a post he held until 1975 when he assumed power in Kingdom. He also presided over the Council of Ministers, which has full organizational and executive powers. King Khaled Ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud followed the policies of his predecessor, King Faisal Ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud, particularly as regards protection of the State, adherence to Islamic teachings and adherence to by the charters of the Arab League and the United Nations.

During his era the Kingdom achieved tremendous economic progress and comprehensive development:
