U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and other senior U.S. officials met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and senior Saudi counterparts. According to a Saudi readout, Sullivan emphasised “the strategic partnership between the two countries’ and the ironclad U.S. commitment to support the Kingdom’s territorial defence against all threats, including Iranian sponsored missile and drone attacks”, in addition to supporting “the Saudi goal of advancing a durable political solution and end to the Yemeni conflict”. The two further called for “intensive diplomatic engagements” and highlighted “the importance of the Huthis participating in good faith in political talks with the legitimate Yemeni Government under the auspices of the UN”.
