In Saudi Arabia earlier, Pompeo said that the US would abandon the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, reached under President Donald Trump's predecessor, unless talks with European partners yield improvements to ensure the Islamic Republic never possesses nuclear weapons.

Pompeo also addressed the rift between some Gulf countries and Qatar: "Gulf unity is necessary and we need to achieve it". He has called for concerted global action to punish Iran for its missile programs and other actions that he said destabilize the region.

Al-Jubeir said the kingdom "supports the policy of the Trump administration against Iran and to improve the terms of the nuclear agreement with Iran". Netanyahu said that Iran's possession of nuclear arms posed the greatest threat globally.

President Donald Trump is to decide by May 12 whether to keep the U.S.in the nuclear deal.

Netanyahu told Pompeo that he is "a true friend of Israel, a true friend of the Jewish people" and that he looks forward to working with him in his new role.

"Iran's missiles prolong war and suffering in the Middle East, they threaten our security and economic interests and they especially threaten Saudi Arabia and Israel", he said.

He added that the United States was "deeply concerned about Iran's risky escalation of threats to Israel and the region".

Pompeo also reiterated the US commitment to relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14. The crisis erupted last summer, when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE blocked the country, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has offered a strong boost of support for Israel against Iran.

Russia, China, Germany, Britain and France, which all struck the accord with Iran and the United States, see the deal as the best way to stop Iran from developing a nuclear bomb.

After Saudi Arabia, Pompeo goes to Israel and Jordan.

On 14 May comes the US Embassy move, marking a significant shift in decades of American policy toward Israel and the Palestinians.

Two days later the US plans to open its new embassy in Jerusalem, marking a significant shift in decades of American policy toward Israel and the Palestinians, who also claim the holy city as their capital.

Dozens of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during recent protests along the border between Israel and Gaza.

The trip allows Pompeo to reclaim that role for the top USA diplomat, even as he has assiduously mentioned Trump's name in every public appearance he has made. He said the US was "unlikely" to stay in if that was not done. But he said unless substantial changes are made, it is "unlikely" Trump will remain in the deal.
