Trump holds call with Saudi crown prince to discuss human rights issues, Iran

Trump on Tuesday held a call with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, where the two leaders discussed Iran and "the importance of human rights issues."

The White House provided few specifics of the call in its official readout.

"They discussed Saudi Arabia’s critical role in ensuring Middle East stability, maintaining maximum pressure against Iran, and the importance of human rights issues," the White House said.

Saudi Arabia's track record on human rights issues and the U.S.-Saudi relationship has been under scrutiny in the wake of the death of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The crown prince has faced sharp criticism in recent months following Khashoggi's death. The journalist, an American resident and a critic of Saudi leadership, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in early October. His remains have not been found.

The Saudi government initially denied knowledge of Khashoggi's whereabouts, and changed its story multiple times before announcing charges against more than a dozen people in the incident.
