Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia, held telephone talks on Sunday with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani on the latest military escalation in the region and its repercussions on security and stability.

They underscored the importance of exerting efforts to prevent the situation from deteriorating further and to protect the region from more escalation.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry had expressed the Kingdom’s grave concern over the recent military escalation in the region and warned against its serious repercussions.

The Kingdom urged all parties to exercise maximum restraint and to avoid war.

The ministry reiterated the Kingdom’s stance, urging the United Nations Security Council to fulfill its responsibility in maintaining international peace and security and to act to prevent the crisis from escalating.

Iran launched a swarm of explosive drones and fired missiles at Israel late on Saturday in its first-ever direct attack on Israeli territory.

Iran had vowed retaliation for what it called an Israeli strike on its Damascus consulate on April 1 that killed seven Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers including two senior commanders and said its strike was a punishment for "Israeli crimes". Israel has neither confirmed nor denied responsibility for the consulate attack.
