Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al-Saud received US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Mike Pompeo.

Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said that the meeting, which was held at Al-Yamama Palace in Riyadh, had focused on bilateral relations.

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 had sent a letter to General 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, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

Iran and Saudi Arabia are also regional foes.
