Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud says he was not aware of any discussions regarding a GCC-Israeli defense alliance after a senior US official said earlier today that the Biden administration sees “great value” in the integrated air defense network it is hoping to establish with Mideast allies.

“There was no discussion about a GCC-Israeli defense alliance or anything of the sort, at least I’m not aware of such discussions,” Al Saud says during a press conference.
