Trump designated Iran’s Revolution Guards Corps as a terrorist organization.
US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have discussed issues relating to regional security, human rights, and Iran.
Trump “had a productive conversation” with the Crown Prince over “Saudi Arabia’s critical role in ensuring stability in the Middle East, maintaining maximum pressure against Iran, and the importance of human rights”, Xinhua quoted a White House statement as saying on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Trump administration designated Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps as a “foreign terrorist organization”.
Iran’s Supreme National Security Council has responded to the US move by labelling US Central Command forces in West Asia as a “terrorist group”.
However, Saudi Arabia on Tuesday said it welcomed the US decision.
