 Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Minister of Defense Prince Khalid bin Salman discussed on Thursday regional security and military cooperation with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo amid heightened tension in the region.

During his visit to Washington, Prince Khalid held closed-door talks with top officials at the State Department. Discussions focused on bilateral cooperation and ways to confront Iran's violations and its influence in Yemen, Lebanon and Syria, in addition to regional tension.

Prince Khalid also met with Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, and the two discussed mutual security challenges and reaffirmed “strong military cooperation in countering terrorism and preserving peace and stability,” the prince said.
