Pompeo Meets With Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived, Wednesday, September 18, to Jeddah to meet Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to discuss the last attack on Aramco, as Riyadh unveiled new evidence it said showed the assault was "unquestionably" sponsored by arch-foe Iran. Iran's state-run IRNA news agency reported Wednesday that Iran sent a diplomatic note to the United States denying involvement and warning that if any actions are taken against Iran, it will respond immediately. Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen have claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack, which knocked out half of Saudi Arabia's oil production. But U.S. officials say the available evidence is showing that is not possible.
