Since the visit of U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Saudi Arabia on 6/6/2023, discussions over the Saudi-Israeli normalization of ties are said to have been ongoing between the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs and senior advisors of U.S. President Joe Biden.
The Saudi Foreign Ministry is keen on keeping the normalization file away from the spotlight, including the visits of U.S. officials to the Kingdom to discuss the file.
Hence, the Ministry did not confirm nor deny the visit of U.S. National Security Council (NSC) coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa Brett Mcgurk to Saudi Arabia.
Tactical Report has prepared a report (414 words) to highlight this matter, including:
- Mcgurk’s visit
- The U.S. demands concerning the Saudi condition about the Arab Peace Initiative
- The Saudi reply
- Riyadh’s view on what the Biden administration has been laying out concerning other Saudi conditions
The report also highlights the position of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman about the Saudi “need” for U.S. guarantees.
