US, S. Arabia talk maritime security in the Gulf

US, S. Arabia talk maritime security in the Gulf

Riyadh, June 24 (UNI) US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday said he had discussed the need to promote maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz with King Salman of Saudi Arabia.

"Productive meeting with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud today to discuss heightened tensions in the region and the need to promote maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz. Freedom of navigation is paramount," Pompeo said on Twitter after a meeting with the Saudi monarch in Jeddah.

During the meeting, both reviewed strategic relations between the two countries, latest developments at regional and international arenas and efforts being exerted towards them, said the Saudi Press Agency.

There is heightened tensions in the region following attacks on oil tankers in Gulf waters which Washington and Riyadh blame on Iran. Tehran denies the charges.

Pompeo told reporters before departing that Washington wanted talks with Tehran even as it planned to impose “significant” new economic sanctions.

“We’ll be talking with (Saudi Arabia and the UAE) about how to make sure that we are all strategically aligned, and how we can build out a global coalition, a coalition...that understands this challenge,” he said.
