U.S. Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook, met Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Defence Minister, Prince Khalid bin Salman, in Riyadh on Friday, the minister tweeted.
They discussed recent attacks in the region for which the U.S. and Saudi Arabia condemned Iran.
However, Iran denied being behind the attack.
Though, Prince Khalid affirmed Saudi support for the U.S. campaign to pressure Tehran.
According to the New York Times, President Donald Trump approved military strikes on Friday against Iran in retaliation for the downing of an unmanned 130-million-dollars surveillance drone but pulled back from launching them.
The Global Hawk drone was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.
The U.S. says the unarmed drone was flying over international waters but Iran says it was on a spy mission over its territorial waters.
The U.S. and Saudi Arabia are among countries that have blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, a major transit route for global oil supplies.
