Amid the confusion in the White House, according to the American press, the issue of relations with Saudi Arabia is one of the most prominent manifestations of this confusion. The “Washington Post,” which is leading the campaign against the meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, as it is directly concerned with the case of Jamal Khashoggi, who was a writer in it, confirming that this meeting presents a free victory for the Saudi crown prince, in exchange for questionable gains for Joe Biden.
For its turn, The New York Post called on Biden to explore for oil inside the US instead of “groveling up” abroad, i.e. for bin Salman.
Among the justifications for the delay in the meeting between Biden and Bin Salman in mentioning the normalizing relations between Saudi Arabia and the Israeli entity
The Israeli enemy presses on Washington to concede to Bin Salman in exchange for the start of a form of gradual official normalization. It was said that preparation for a meeting in which Biden will participate with the leaders of the “Gulf Cooperation Council” countries are taking place, during which an agreement is supposed to obtain new American security guarantees for the Persian Gulf states, all of whom are afraid of the security vacuum left by the American withdrawal from the Middle East.
However the most urgent issue for the Americans is oil, because it is linked to the Ukraine war. It is also very complicated, not because of the intentions of those controlling OPEC policy, but because of the unpredictable nature of the global oil market, which is affected by many factors.
Two main factors can be mentioned: the first is that the ability of Saudi Arabia and the “OPEC” countries to increase their production is limited, because they are already producing close to their maximum capacity; The second is that Russia is able to find alternative customers for European customers, albeit decisively, while Europe is the one who needs alternative sources of energy that are not immediately available, and will need years to become available, if available.
After news of the postponement of the meeting was leaked by White House officials, the campaign of criticism against Biden, whether in the United States or by Saudi opponents who accused him of "treason", turned into a hope that he would retract the idea of the meeting. And what happened, indeed, disturbed the joy of Bin Salman, who was a few steps away from achieving his dream of the throne.#USA #Saudi_Arabia 22-06-07
