DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan met U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in Riyadh, a statement from the ministry said on Tuesday.

Mnuchin said on Sunday Saudi Arabia’s explanation of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a “good first step but not enough”, adding that it was premature to discuss sanctions over the incident.

Mnuchin is touring the region to discuss counter-terrorism measures with Arab allies.
