President Biden spoke with Saudi King Salman yesterday, but a White House readout on their call made no mention of the two discussing the killing of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

You'll remember Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018 before being brutally murdered.

A newly declassified report is expected to blame the king's son — Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — for ordering the murder.

The White House said the president and King Salman discussed the countries' "longstanding partnership" and agreed to work together on areas of common interest.
