Congressional Delegation visits Saudi Arabia, UAE and Oman

Just prior to the Senate returning to Washington D.C. after the August recess, Senators Angus King (I-ME) and Todd Young (R-IN) took part in a Congressional Delegation that visited Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Oman.

Notable from the trip was a meeting between the two Senators and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, during which King and Young reportedly questioned the ruler concerning the October 2018 murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Of his thoughts on the incident after the meeting Senator King shared, “The people involved have to be held accountable and I think he has to take on some level of responsibility, whether or not he gave the order.”
