Prince Khalid, Pompeo hold talks in Washington

  • Pompeo welcomed Prince Khalid and expressed his aspiration to further strengthen Saudi-US ties

RIYADH: Saudi Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the State Department headquarters in Washington.
Pompeo welcomed Prince Khalid and expressed his aspiration to further strengthen Saudi-US ties. During their meeting, they discussed bilateral relations and the latest regional and international developments.
They also discussed efforts to resolve regional crises, including Iran’s destabilizing practices and Saudi support for the political process in Yemen.
On Friday, Saudi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Assaf said that the threat from Iran is the main challenge facing Arabs. “One of the most dangerous forms of terrorism and extremism is what Iran practices through its blatant interference in Arab affairs, and its militias ... the Revolutionary Guards in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen, which requires cooperation from us to confront,” he said.
Earlier, a high-profile meeting of foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said only a political solution would resolve the crisis in Yemen. They affirmed their “commitment to preserve the unity, sovereignty and territorial independence and integrity” of Yemen.

Faces of Saudi: Dr. Basmah Al-Rowaily

Many choose to become doctors from a very young age, however, this was not the case for me. During high school I excelled academically, which led my father to pressure me into choosing to pursue medicine. I studied to become a family physician, later focusing on regenerative medicine and anti-ageing medicine, including aesthetics — all of which have aided me in providing a holistic and personalized approach for my patients. Not only do I believe in such medicinal practices as a means toward achieving better health, I also believe in the natural healing power of the universe.
