Saudi Arabia’s government says it supports “US efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon,” in comments carried by state news agency SPA, according to Reuters.

The news agency also cites the government as thanking the US for its support against attacks by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group.

Talks in Vienna with Iran and Western powers aimed at reaching a deal over Tehran’s nuclear program are ongoing, as diplomats have repeatedly warned that any agreement must be reached as soon as possible as the clock runs out.
