WASHINGTON (Reuters) -National security adviser Jake Sullivan planned on discussing high oil prices with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during a meeting earlier this week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Thursday.

“Obviously, the price of oil is of concern. We have been in touch with OPEC, and I believe it was going to be raised but I haven’t had a chance to get a readout beyond that,” Psaki told reporters.

Sullivan had a detailed discussion about the war in Yemen on Tuesday in a meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, a senior administration official told Reuters.
