The US will be taking a series of steps to respond to the devastating SolarWinds cyber hack and hold accountable those responsible in "short order," national security adviser Jake Sullivan told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Friday.

"We are in the process now of working through, with the intelligence community and [President Joe Biden's] national security team, a series of steps to respond to Solar Winds, including steps that will hold who we believe is responsible for this and accountable, and you will be hearing about this in short order," Sullivan said.

The administration will soon send Congress an unclassified report on killing of the Saudi royal-insider who fell out with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman before his death in October 2018, Sullivan said.

Asked about the administration's Thursday announcement that it is willing to sit down with Iran and other countries to discuss how to restart negotiations on the fraying international deal that put limits on Iran's nuclear program, Sullivan said, "We believe it is totally possible to come to a diplomatic solution," but stressed it is "an early stage. "

"Ultimately, he is going to make his own determination of what is in the best interest of the United States and the American people and his fundamental proposition that the purpose of this mission in Afghanistan is to protect the United States from Afghanistan ever again becoming a launchpad for terrorist attacks against the United States and the allies," Sullivan said.

Sullivan said the Biden administration will soon send Congress an unclassified report on the grisly killing of Khashoggi in October 2018.
