Discussing areas of cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the U.S., Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman remarked that "we are pushing back against extremists and terrorists and Iran's negative moves in the Middle East in a good way". Bin Salman added that "the request that America made to Saudi Arabia and other OPEC countries is to be sure that if there is any loss of [oil] supply from Iran, that we will supply that. And that happened... we export as much as two barrels for any barrel that disappeared from Iran recently".
