Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz was greeted with a military honor guard.
In opening comments, Esper and Prince Khalid said they intended to work toward strengthening the bilateral relationship between the two countries.
Lawmakers said their efforts to stop military sales and impose sanctions to punish Saudi human rights abuses would continue after their August break.
U.S. President Donald Trump - and many supporters in Congress - object to punitive measures against Saudi Arabia, which they consider a valuable partner and important counterweight to Iran's influence in the region.
Trump also considers foreign weapons sales an important generator of American jobs.
