‘Safe zones’ in Syria & Yemen

US President Donald Trump and the Saudi King, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, have discussed the so-called ‘safe zones’ in Syria and Yemen during their phone conversation on Sunday, the White House said in a statement. The Saudi monarch has agreed to support the creation of the zones, which Trump earlier said should be created to protect Syrian refugees, without providing details. The two leaders also discussed Iran, agreeing there should be strict implementation of Iran’s nuclear deal while also addressing what the statement called “Iran’s destabilizing regional activities.” King Salman invited Trump to “lead a Middle East effort to defeat terrorism and to help build a new future, economically and socially.”
