Both monarchs also congratulated Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, according to other Monday Saudi Press Agency reports. The Saudi Arabian leaders said they extended their hopes for Americans’ “steady progress and prosperity.”

The leaders didn’t mention President Donald Trump’s in these statements, Reuters reported. Saudi Arabia supported Trump’s policies on the Middle East and the president’s counter-stance to Iran.

The Biden campaign and the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.
