Saudi Arabia's King Salman has met the director of the Central Intelligence Agency، Mike Pompeo، in the Saudi capital، Riyadh، AP reported.
The official Saudi Press Agency says the two discussed bilateral relations and regional developments on Monday.
On the Saudi side، the meeting was attended by the king's son، Prince Khalid bin Salman، who is the Saudi ambassador to Washington، as well as Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir، the head of General Intelligence Khalid al-Humaidan and royal court chief Khalid al-Issa.
Earlier this month، Pompeo said he'd sent a letter to Gen. Qassem Soleimani، the head of Iran's elite fighting Quds Force، warning him that the United States would hold Tehran accountable for any attacks it conducted on American interests in Iraq.
Iran and Saudi Arabia are also regional foes. Noteworthy، heir to Saudi Arabia’s throne crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef has been awarded a medal by the director of the US Central Intelligence Agency Mike Pompeo، who honored his counterterrorism work.
