Untied States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Wednesday to discuss the two countries' joint response and potential action against Iran in relation to the attacks on Saudi Aramco's oil facilities, the US Embassy in Dubai confirmed.

The embassy said in a statement they will "discuss the recent attack on oil facilities in the kingdom and coordinate efforts to counter Iranian attacks in the region." The US and Saudi Arabia believe Iran was behind the attacks which were claimed by Yemeni Houthis while Tehran denies its involvement.
