During the meeting, they discussed the crisis in Ukraine, and Prince Faisal stressed the Kingdom’s support for all that contributes to reducing the escalation, protecting civilians, seriously seeking negotiated political solutions, and all international efforts to resolve the crisis politically.

Ukraine's southern port city of Mariupol was again the site of intense combat on Saturday as Russian forces bombarded the city, damaging a major steel plant. One local police officer pleaded to the West for help, saying Mariupol has been "wiped off the face of the earth.”

Mariupol has been the site of some of the war’s greatest suffering. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said early on Sunday that what Russian forces did to the peaceful city of 430,000 "is a terror that will be remembered for centuries to come.”
