- Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has told his associates that he is no longer interested in pleasing the US.
- The Crown Prince wants “something in return” for any concessions he gives to Washington.
Tensions are high in the global geopolitical landscape, with several nations moving away from the US dollar and pointing fingers at each other for the macroeconomic crisis. Leaders from around the world have been openly expressing their disapproval.
A recent report by the Wall Street Journal has revealed that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has told his associates that he is no longer interested in pleasing the US. According to unnamed sources familiar with the conversation, he wants “something in return” for any concessions he gives to Washington.
This shift in attitude could have significant implications for the US-Saudi relationship, which has long been an important strategic alliance in the region. Saudi Arabia is a major oil producer and a key player in the Middle East, and any change in its stance towards the US could have ripple effects throughout the region and beyond.
Saudi Crown Prince expresses his indifference toward President Biden
Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s stance on the US has once again come under the spotlight, as reports reveal that he has previously expressed his indifference towards the US President, Joe Biden. The Crown Prince had stated that he did not care if Biden misunderstood him, adding that the US should focus on its own interests.
This is not the first time that Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has taken a strong stance against the US. In fact, he has made it clear that Saudi Arabia does not have the right to lecture the US, and the same goes the other way. With deteriorating relations between Saudi Arabia and the Biden Administration, the Prince’s comments do not come as a surprise.
The recent surprise announcement by Saudi Arabia and other major oil producers to cut oil production by up to 1.15 million barrels per day from May until the end of the year, could also have significant economic implications worldwide. Cryptopolitan reported that Saudi Arabia is trying to adopt an economic strategy without dependence on the US, which could explain the Prince’s strong stance.
As the global geopolitical landscape remains tense, it remains to be seen how these developments will play out in the future and what impact they will have on the wider world.
