His Majesty lauded the pivotal role of the United States in consolidating international peace and security, noting the efforts of General Kurilla in further developing the Bahraini-American defensive and security cooperation as allied countries.

During the meeting, His Majesty King and the Commander of the US Central Command exchanged views on the latest regional and international developments, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
