Riyadh, June 24 (IANS) US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Saudi Arabia on Monday for a regional visit to discuss Iran-related topics.
Pompeo is expected to meet King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, before flying to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Xinhua news agency quoted Al Arabiya TV as saying.
