Saudi Arabia’s top security czar Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on Sunday met with top counter-terrorism officials from the United States, the state news agency reported on Monday.

John Brennan, assistant to US President Barack Obama for homeland security and counter-terrorism, attended talks in Jeddah on Sunday on “issues of common interest between the two countries,” SPA said.

The meeting was also attended by Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Smith, and a number of senior Saudi officials, the news agency said without elaborating.

"The meeting focused on the need to ... build strong and fruitful cooperation to reduce the spread of terrorism in all countries in the world, especially in the Middle East, and the importance of working together to fight Al-Qaeda and terrorism," SPA said.
