(Washington, DC) — President Biden will travel to Saudi Arabia next month. The White House confirmed Tuesday the president will meet with the Saudi Crown Prince in a July.
The stop is part of a trip to the Middle East that also includes visits to Israel and the West Bank. During his campaign, Biden promised to treat the kingdom as a “pariah” after the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The CIA concluded the Saudi Crown Prince ordered the killing because Khashoggi criticized his regime.
The President denies the trip to Saudi Arabia would primarily be an effort to get the Saudis to pump more oil as gas prices soar, but other U.S. officials admit oil is a big factor for the visit.
