U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday his country’s relationship with Saudi Arabia was still under review despite the administration’s ruling that the Saudi crown prince has immunity from a lawsuit over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

Blinken, in Qatar for the yearly U.S.-Qatar strategic dialogue, said the ruling did not impact the relationship with Riyadh and said there were no plans for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to visit the United States.
