President Trump condemned the attempt, which was a blatant attack that target targeted a populated area.
King Salman and President Trump also discussed measures to implement United Nations Security Council resolutions that hold the Iranian regime accountable for its aggressive actions in the region and their continuous supply of missiles to the Houthi militia that threatens the security and stability of the Kingdom and countries of the region.
