WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden dispatched his national security adviser Jake Sullivan to Saudi Arabia on Thursday for talks with the kingdom’s de facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as the White House pushes for a normalization of relations between the country and Israel.
The White House in a brief statement said that Sullivan arrived in Jeddah on Thursday for talks with the crown prince, who is often referred to by his initial MbS, and other Saudi officials. The wide-ranging talks covered initiatives to “advance a common vision for a more peaceful, secure, prosperous, and stable Middle East,” and efforts to find a permanent end to the years-long conflict between the Saudis and Iran-allied Houthis in Yemen, according to the White House.
Sullivan and the prince also discussed the Biden administration’s hopes to normalize relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, according to a White House National Security Council official familiar with the matter. The official was not authorized to comment publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

For its part, the kingdom’s state-run Saudi Press Agency acknowledged the meeting, saying only that the two sides “discussed the Saudi-U.S. strategic relations and ways to enhance them in various fields, in addition to the latest regional and international developments of mutual concern.”

The kingdom released no images of the meeting, which saw Saudi Arabia’s defense and energy ministers attend, along with the head of its Public Investment Fund. The U.S. has been trying to get Riyadh to end its war in Yemen while also trying to lobby it over global oil prices, without much success.

The effort to strengthen the historically fraught relationship between the Middle East’s two significant powers comes after the Trump administration helped usher in the “Abraham Accords,” normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco.
A normalization deal with Saudi Arabia, the most powerful and wealthy Arab state, has the potential to reshape the region and boost Israel’s standing in historic ways. But brokering such a deal is a heavy lift as the kingdom has said it won’t officially recognize Israel before a resolution to the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Sullivan’s visit comes after Secretary of State Antony Blinken traveled to the kingdom last month in part to promote normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia.

During Blinken’s recent visit, Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said that normalization with Israel would have “limited benefits” without “finding a pathway to peace for the Palestinian people.”
The Saudis have also shown hesitance to proceed with normalizing relations with Israel at a time when it is led by the most right-wing government in its history, and when tensions have soared with the Palestinians. Meanwhile, Israel remains mired in a political crisis over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to weaken its judiciary, a move which has unleashed the biggest protests in the country’s history.
The Saudis have repeatedly called for the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza, territories Israel seized in the 1967 war.
Saudi Arabia also has pushed increasingly for a nuclear cooperation deal that includes America allowing it to enrich uranium in the kingdom — something that worries nonproliferation experts, as spinning centrifuges open the door to a possible weapons program.
Prince Mohammed already has said the kingdom would pursue an atomic bomb if Iran had one, potentially creating a nuclear arms race in the region as Tehran’s program continues to advance closer to weapons-grade levels.

Basically Biden tell Arabs to accept the rape murder and genocide of Palestinians.

Over the years, all I heard from Arab League were proposals for two-state solution. As a league of dictators, they didn't prioritize Palestinian lives and dignity. Since Israel said no to two state-solution, Arab states had nothing more to say, and six Arab states unconditionally recognized Israel!! However, the model of brutality, apartheid, and genocide that we see from the "Holy Lands" must not and cannot be accepted in the interest of humanity.
 
I’m not going apologise? Disgusting human beings who value money over all else. The Israelis murder helpless Palestinians every day and the media stays silent about it
 
This has nothing to do with Saudi Arabia. It's an internal Israeli issue. US and Israel just trying to get Saudi Arabia associated with Israel to give greenlight for Shia invasion of Saudi Arabia. Not sure MBS is aware of that or not.

They are always trying to coerce Saudi Arabia into recognition of Israel for the ulterior motives. Which will be followed with shia invasion of Saudi Arabia and take a demonic turn.

BBC CNN and practically every major network in the West deliberately mislead audience and try paint palestinians as rougue, meanwhile rarely broadcast the brutal inhumane Israeli settler colonial acts. This massive concerted media play can never be achieved without tacit US government incentives. Which reveals the hypocrisy and totally disregard for human suffering and to not talk about number of UN resolutions.

The same networks also target independent media as non-truth etc.
Is there any surprise why people are leaving traditional media?

The zionists has even tried to silence critics in America by lobbying multiple states to ban BDS supporters and Israel-critics from public positions, including school teachers. In what other western country are citizens being asked to sign a letter where they must profess loyalty to Israel.

The so called freedom of speech straight out the window when it comes to Israel. Even accepting discrimination of US citizens of palestinian origin when they visit Israel.

Because the west has fallen victim to israel Marxism. their plants are everywhere, from schools to libraries to research centres to the media; in the civil service, you name it. The issue of so-called being anti- Semite is one tool they use to exert their control. Instead of arresting you they frighten you into the fear of losing your job and reputation should you voice an unapproved view on Israel . Hence some media reporters who also question this orthodoxy have to wait until they are retired before they dare do so. Speak out … bbc cnn are staffed with Jewish controllers and their cherry picked pro Israel staff and reporters…
