July 8, 2021
WASHINGTON: On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia’s deputy defense minister became the highest-ranking Saudi envoy to visit Washington since Joe Biden took office in January, meeting with senior officials about the Yemen war and Iran’s threats.
The two officials discussed the US-Saudi partnership, regional security, and “the US commitment to assist Saudi Arabia in defending its territory as it faces attacks from Iranian-aligned groups.”
The prince also met with Colin Kahl, the US defense undersecretary for policy, and the two talked about “efforts to end the war in Yemen and the shared US-Saudi commitment to counter Iran’s destabilizing activities,” among other things, according to the Pentagon.
The meetings were intended to give Saudi Arabia a sense of how relations with the US have shifted since former Republican President Donald Trump’s pro-Saudi policies.
