Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, and US President Donald Trump held a telephone call on Friday to discuss Iran’s escalatory behavior, said White House.
“The two leaders discussed Saudi Arabia’s critical role in ensuring stability in the Middle East and in the global oil market. They also discussed the threat posed by the Iranian regime’s escalatory behavior” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
The phone call took place in the wake of Iran’s shooting down of unmanned US drone in the Gulf region, which prompted Trump to prepare but ultimately hold back from launching a retaliatory attack.
The destruction of the drone was the latest in an escalating series of incidents in the Gulf region, a critical artery for global oil supplies, since mid-May, including explosive strikes on six oil tankers.
