Published: Updated:

Nathan Tech, the spokesman of the regional office of the U.S. State Department, said that the U.S. is sharing Saudi Arabia’s fears of Iran's role in the region.

Tech also said that the Iranian nuclear agreement was the best way to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and that the agreement will prevent arms race in the region.

He added that the U.S. and Saudi leaders will discuss ways to strengthen security and strategic cooperation between their countries as well as ways to enable the GCC to defend themselves against external threats.

Speaking about Yemen and Syria, Tech said that there must be political solutions to both files.
