His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday met with US Special Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS, Brett McGurk, to discuss regional and international efforts to combat terrorism, a Royal Court statement said.

On Wednesday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on Iran’s parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, which killed 13.

Also on Wednesday, King Abdullah discussed the latest regional developments in a phone call with Spanish King Felipe VI, while also reviewing the two countries’ bilateral relations. The two monarchs last met in May, when King Felipe attended the World Economic Forum Middle East and North Africa at the Dead Sea.
