Saudi Crown Prince, US Secretary of State discuss latest regional developments


Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense, met here on Monday with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed the historical Saudi Arabia-United States relationship and the bilateral cooperation between the two countries in various fields. They also reviewed the latest developments in the region and stressed that the two countries stand side by side in confronting hostile Iranian activities and combating extremism and terrorism.

Pompeo’s visit came less than a day after Yemen’s Houthi militia used an Iranian-made drone to bomb Abha International Airport in southern Saudi Arabia, killing a Syrian resident and wounding 21 civilians of different nationalities.
