Saudi Arabian King Salman has approved the sponsorship of US forces in his country to boost regional security and stability, reports SPA official news agency on Friday.

The sponsorship move was taken following the mounting tensions between Washington and Tehran in the Gulf which also affected global oil prices.

Iran yesterday announced a hijacking of the British tankers in the Strait of Hormuz but denied Washington’s allegations that the US navy team managed to shoot down an Iranian drone near the area earlier this week.

The SPA citing the official source of the defense ministry reports that the move is aimed at enhancing cooperation in terms of maintaining regional security and stability and maintaining peace.

The relationship between Washington and Tehran has worsened last year when US President Donald Trump boycotted a 2015 nuclear agreement between the world power and Iran.

Under the agreement, Iran agreed to restrict the long-awaited nuclear program in an attempt to conceal all their nuclear weapons development projects, in exchange for a recapture of sanctions.

The sanctions are, however, reestablished, thus destroying the Iranian economy.

According to Trump, he considers Saudi Arabia an important ally in West Asia and helps deal with Iran’s influence in the region.
