White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan traveled to Saudi Arabia on Thursday for talks with the kingdom’s de facto leader, said the presidential mansion. 

Sullivan met with Prime Minister and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and senior Saudi officials to discuss bilateral and regional matters, including initiatives to advance a common vision for a more peaceful, secure, prosperous and stable Middle East region interconnected with the world, said the White House.

“Mr. Sullivan also reviewed significant progress to build on the benefits of the truce in Yemen that have endured over the past 16 months and welcomed ongoing UN-led efforts to bring the war to a close,” it said.

"Both delegations agreed to maintain regular consultations and follow up on matters discussed throughout the day," it added.

Sullivan's visit follows one by Secretary of State Antony Blinken in early June, during which Blinken and bin Salman "affirmed their shared commitment to advance stability, security and prosperity across the Middle East and beyond." ​​​​​​​
