U.S. reserves right to sanction Saudi crown prince if necessary

WASHINGTON, March 1 (Reuters) – The United States reserves the right to sanction Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the future if necessary, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Monday.

“Of course we reserve the right to take any action at a time and manner of our choosing,” Psaki said at a briefing, adding that, “Historically, the United States through Democratic and Republican presidents has not typically sanctioned government leaders of countries where we have diplomatic relations.” (Reporting by Jonathan Landay Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
