Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman called US President Donald Trump and offered condolences over the December 6 shooting at a Florida military base which was carried out by a Saudi national, media reports said on Monday.
In a telephone call with Trump, the Crown Prince offered his condolences to the families of the three victims and hoped for a speedy recovery to the injured, the Arabic Asharq al Awsat newspaper said in a report.
He also assured Trump that Saudi authorities would offer their absolute cooperation with the US and provide all information that would help the investigations.
A day after the attack, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, had said he directed Saudi security services to cooperate with US authorities investigating the shooting.
He called Trump, expressing "his sorrow and grief" over the shooting.
The King Salman assured him that the "perpetrator of this heinous crime" does not represent the Saudi people.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has identified the perpetrator as Mohammed Alshamrani (21), a second lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force.
