  • I just wanted to see if you could confirm that the president is speaking with King Salman of Saudi Arabia today on def.

  • He'll do that in advance of the report on the show.

  • Well, as we've noted in the past, we remain committed Thio releasing through the DNA, of course.

  • An unclassified report, uh, that we expect to happen soon.

  • I don't have an updated timeline for you on that.

  • I know.

  • There were also reports on a proposed call.

  • We also expect that to happen soon.

  • We're still in the process of scheduling one that that will happen.

  • Does President Biden want the Saudi crown Prince to be on that call?

  • The president's intention, as is the intention of this government, is to, uh, to recalibrate our engagement with Saudi Arabia and to have counterparts communicate with counterparts.

  • And, uh, he communicated Prince Salman communicated with the Secretary of Defense.

  • That's the appropriate line of communication.

  • And the president will speak with the king at the appropriate time.

  • It will be soon.

  • And as soon as we have a update on that being finalized, and of course, when it happens will provide you all with a Reto I know that?

  • Yeah, they'll be speaking, but well, he Is he okay if he's on the coal?

  • I wouldn't anticipate the call being directly with the king and one on one collar.

  • A call?

  • Of course.

  • You know, those would be the primary participants.

  • If the U.

  • S.

  • Government believes that Mohammed bin Salman was behind her in some way related to the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

  • How can this administration continue to deal with and in what way do you intend?

  • Well, I think we'll wait for the unclassified report to be released, which will be released through the DNA.

  • And while I don't have an update on that, I expect that will be soon, uh, to speak further.

  • And, of course, a xai.

  • When I talked about recalibration, I was referring to, of course, the counterpart to counterpart, cause that was kind of how the question was posed.

  • But, you know, we always look the president is taking a fresh approach to how he engages with foreign leaders around the world and different from the prior administration.

  • And that means he will not hold back.

  • And he will speak out when there are concerns he has about human rights abuses about, uh, the lack of freedom of speech or the lack of freedom of media and expression or any concerns he has.

  • At the same time, we have a long relationship with Saudi Arabia.

  • They're being attacked in the region, and, uh, that is certainly an area where we continue to work with them on.

  • But I expect we'll have more to say when we get post the release of that report.

I just wanted to see if you could confirm that the president is speaking with King Salman of Saudi Arabia today on def.
