SECRETARY TILLERSON: Good evening, all. I want to welcome back to the State Department Saudi Foreign Minister Jubeir, and I look forward to our discussions. Obviously, many, many important issues in the region to discuss where we’re working cooperatively on – both in Syria, with the Yemen conflict, stabilizing the entire region, and very broadly counterterrorism, where we have a great partnership underway. So welcome, Excellency.

FOREIGN MINISTER AL-JUBEIR: Thank you. Always a pleasure. Good to see you.

SECRETARY TILLERSON: Welcome. Thank you.

FOREIGN MINISTER AL-JUBEIR: Thank you.
