WASHINGTON, March 13 (Xinhua) -- Saudi crown prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al Saud was leaving a U.S. clinic on Tuesday after receiving routine tests there, a spokeswoman from the clinic said.

"He is leaving Cleveland Clinic today," said Eileen Sheil, spokeswoman from the clinic which is located in Cleveland, Ohio.

Sheil had previously confirmed that Nayef arrived in Cleveland on Thursday night to undergo "routine tests."

Nayef was appointed as the new crown prince by Saudi king Abdullah in last October, following the death of former crown prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

Nayef has served as the second deputy premier and interior minister of the world's top oil supplier since 1975.
