Pompeo and Sheikh Abdullah discussed the need to counter Iran's "destabilising behaviour", according to a statement released on Friday by the State Department, Xinhua news agency reported.
The two sides also talked about the situation in Libya and the importance of the unity of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the statement added.
Following its unilateral exit from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal last year, Washington has been piling up pressure on Tehran through a series of sanctions to force it to return to negotiations.
Iran, however, has maintained a tough stance and vowed to retaliate the US' anti-Iran moves.
