Joe Biden said he “has no intention” of meeting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman at the G20 summit scheduled for next month. The US president intends to reassess relations with Saudi Arabia, national security adviser Jake Sullivan reported.

US President Joe Biden “has no intentions” of meeting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman at next month’s G20 summit in Indonesia, Jake Sullivan, the White House national security adviser, said on Sunday.

“The President will not act hastily”

“The President was effectively saying that he would reevaluate our relationship with Saudi Arabia because they were siding with Russia against the interests of the American people,” Jake Sullivan said when speaking to CNN after the deteriorating relationship between Ryad and Washington after the fall was asked in OPEC+ production quotas, which benefits Russia. “These are relationships built over decades with bipartisan support,” he added. “The President will therefore not act hastily.”

But “he has no intention of meeting the crown prince at the G20 summit,” he said. Joe Biden’s adviser noted that among the options being considered for reassessing ties with Riyadh were “changes in our approach to military aid to Saudi Arabia.”

Last week, OPEC+ – the 13 members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) led by Saudi Arabia and its 10 partners led by Russia – decided to cut production quotas to shore up falling crude prices. A price hike will save the coffers of Russia, which is banking on its sales of hydrocarbons to finance its war in Ukraine.
